A 'Spectaculathon' performance in Richmond
RICHMOND — Richmond Consolidated School will present a "The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon" this Friday and Saturday at the school, located at 1831 State Road (Route 41).
Written by Don Zolodis and directed by Amy Brentano, two narrators and 35 students will attempt to recreate all 209 fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm in a wild, fast-paced, one-act extravaganza. The show will include nods to classics like "Snow White," "Cinderella," and "Hansel and Gretel" to more bizarre, obscure stories like "The Devil's Grandmother" and "The Girl Without Hands."
Show times are at 7 p.m. on Friday and at 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday. Performances are open to the public, and admission is $3 per student, $5 per adult, with a maximum of $20 per family.
This free-form comedy is being produced by special arrangement with Playscripts Inc., and is supported in part by grants from the Richmond Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Richmond Educational Enrichment Fund (REEF) endowment through the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
