    SCROLL DOWN FOR A SUMMARY OF THE PLAY


    [​IMG]


    Based on the beloved book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, the irreverent parody gives classic fairy tales a wickedly delightful twist. What do you get when you take classic fairy tales and turn them on their head? According to The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, the Ugly Duckling grows up to be A Really Ugly Duck, Cinderella snubs Rumpelstiltskin, and the Princess kisses a frog only to end up with a mouthful of slime. Intertwined throughout the show, the zany takes on traditional fairy tales are sure to delight audiences of all ages.


    First published in 1992, The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales quickly became a favorite family book. Featuring cheeky, fractured fairy tales by Jon Scieszka and vibrant, fantastical illustrations by Lane Smith, the book was designated as a Caldecott Honor Book in 1993. ​

    I tried it make this post even bigger, but ran out of room on my screen.;-) But now that y'all have the whole web page- go to the Rep schedule and look at the other summer productions and the schedule for the rest of the year!

    We are entirely too excited for Stinky Cheese!! (I never thought I would say something like this!)

    Thanks for the info. We need to check on the last show, because it has it listed as Tuesdays, ending Aug 11, but Aug 11 is a Monday.

    Cannot wait to see this!

    A little bird (that happens to live in our house) told me that it is hilarious and that young AND old will be loving it!

    Wow! I wasn't expecting there to be more people at Stinky Cheese... than the crowd at the Neville Bros. You never know around here. (okay, I'm exaggerating a little bit, but not by much.)

    Great performance! I may have to go read all of those fairy tales to put it all together. COWPIE!

    Well, my summer schedule is shaping up. I now know that every Tuesday evening will be spent at Watercolor, relaxing on the grass, while Kate and assorted little girlfriends are mesmerized by this play. I know I can watch this over and over and it will be hilarious every time...

    I will be spending some time today looking into cow patty merch....cow patty- the theme of summer 2008!

    The director, actors, and crew did an excellent job- once again, I am wowed by the talent at the Rep, and we are lucky to have such a fantastic professional theater.:clap:

    See y'all next Monday for Sleeping Beauty, and again on Tuesday for that new local bad boy, The Stinky Cheese Man!

    PS- If you would like a promo poster for these plays at your business, please PM me and I will deliver it!
