Once Upon a Murder in Fairyfieldland

Director: Scott Gottliebson
Assistant Director: Bethany Kempinski

Rated PG. As Merwin S. Carecrow, and his court appointed community service workers prepare to re-open the Fairyfieldland Community Center, the Banshee rushes in to relay the terrible news that the Fairy Godmother had been murdered and her wand is missing! Tensions run high as Prince Al and Princess Pegitha, along with Prince Charming and Sinderella- both in for couples counseling – are each implicated in the alleged crime. Come to Wagnalls Memorial September 10th and 11th for “Once Upon a Murder in Fairyfieldland” by G Howard Scott as a host of modernly madcap characters unravel the mystery of the missing matron of magic, and, maybe find out what the deal is with Narcoleptic Beauty anyway!

Admission is free, but donations are requested.
