Addison Trail Theatre invites everyone to enjoy classic fairy tales – with a dark and humorous twist – during the school’s spring play, “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon” by Don Zolidis.

The show is comprised of nine students portraying themselves on stage as they act out scenes from “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Rapunzel,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “The Frog Prince,” “Snow White,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Cinderella.”

“This season has been a bit heavy with more serious productions and genres, and I chose ‘The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon’ for something fun to end the year on a light and silly note,” said Anna McSweeney, Addison Trail Theatre Director. “I wanted something that involves audience engagement and improv, and this show definitely encompasses both of those aspects. The style of the play also allows the actors to grow and test their skills, which is always wonderful to see.”

Addison Trail senior Gianna Caruso, who plays one of the two narrators, said the performance will offer a lot of surprises.

“The audience can look forward to the unexpected,” Caruso said. “As a line in the show reads, ‘We’re here to do a very quick, fast and kind of funny version of Brothers Grimm fairy tales.’”

Addison Trail senior Connor White, who plays the second narrator, said the small size of the cast created a close-knit environment.

“We all bonded and instantly clicked, and that comes through on stage,” White said.
