High school play turns fairy tales upside down

High school thespians are playing with fairy tales this month in preparation for their fall play "Fractured" by Eddie McPherson. It will be performed at 7 p.m. Oct. 24, 25 and 26 at the high school auditorium.

In the play, Princess Esmeralda has fallen in love with Lance A. Lot, a mortal from the real world. When the uptight King and Queen learn of their daughter's affection for this human, they banish him and strip Esmeralda's helpful fairy godmother of her powers.

In the meantime, everyone in the kingdom is stuck in limbo because no one in the real world is reading fairy tales anymore. Cinderella can never have her glass slipper, Jack can never climb his beanstalk, Beauty's beau will always be a beast and, well, you get the picture, bleak as it is.

Esmeralda must come up with a plan that will somehow bring Lance back and get everyone else's stories back on track. That way they all can finally reach their happily ever afters. Throw in a wizard who loves stealing the spotlight and a line-up of dysfunctional Prince Charmings, and you have a crazy culmination of fractured fairy tale characters.

Tickets cost $4 for students/senior citizens or $6 for adults and are available at the door.
