The Marshalltown High School drama department will present the spring play “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon” at 7 p.m. both Friday, April 6 and Saturday April 7 at the MHS/Community Auditorium.
The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more bizarre, obscure stories like The Devil’s Grandmother and The Girl Without Hands. It’s a wild, free-form comedy with audience participation and madcap fun.
Directed by Grant Gale, the production features 16 actors taking on a variety of roles.
Admission at the door is $5 for adults and high school students, $3 for students (8th and below) and activity tickets honored.
