In the fairy tale criminal justice system, the characters from fairy tales and nursery rhymes are represented by two separate yet equally ridiculous groups: the fairy tale police who investigate fairy tale crime and the fairy tale district attorneys who prosecute the fairy tale offenders. These are their stories.
Bring the entire family for this wonderfully hysterical and “pun-filled” comedy that pokes fun at both children’s story and TV’s longest running crime drama. This play features knee-slapping laughs, broad comic intrigue and the infamous “duhn-duhn” that audiences have grown to expect with every version of “Law and Order.”
The cast includes: Bryan Abad, Maddy Foler, Milton Guendica, Henry Gussis, Amber Ilisie, Sophia Izquierdo, Ryland Narvaez, Noah Nogueras, Trinity Pluraid, Kylie Ramirez, Gabby Rogan, Ella Rousseau, Roland Teivans, Anton Tomacic, Uros Tubic and Sarah Zasso.
