In Celebration of Fairy Tales

Today is Tell a Fairy Tale Day!

To celebrate, we're highlighting our tall tales, fairy tales and fables. Those beloved stories get passed down from generation to generation and we all have our favorites, but sometimes there are those stories that get a little...strange?

Friends, I give you: Fractured Fairytales!


 When Mary McBlicken the prairie chicken hears a rumblin' and a grumblin', she sets off to warn her friends in this prairie-style twist on Chicken Little.


This modern remix of the beloved fairy tale delivers a freshly humorous take on one prince's search for the just-right girl of his dreams.

In this quirky twist on 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf,' Tim's outrageous excuses turn out to have an unexpected element of truth.

Three fun-loving armadillo sisters are eager to cross a busy highway to get to the new dance hall on the other side, but inside the culvert lurks a spindly legged coyote...
When Reba Jo finds herself in a mess of trouble, she's forced to strike a deal with a horned toad.

This hysterical collision of fairy tales, melodrama and the Gold Rush West cries out for audience participation.

Ol' Bloo Donkey realizes it's time to hit the road and pursue his ambition of being a star in this hilarious backwoods retelling of 'The Bremen Town Musicians.'
