Rosey Snow is trapped in a fairytale world that is by turns funny and a little frightening, with her stepsisters Goneril and Regan, her demented stepmother, her lecherous father, a bewildered prince, a fairy godmother who sings salty old sailor songs, a troll, and a possibly homicidal village idiot. This play investigates the archetypal origins of the world’s most popular fairytale, contrasting the familiar and charming Perrault version with the darker, more ancient and disturbing tale recorded by the Brothers 格林. Grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend in a fairytale for adults.

的Hett opens for general admission seating 30 minutes prior to each performance. For more information, please contact Michelle Magnussen at (618) 537-6586. 购买 tickets, please visit
