Funked Up Fairy Tales at Depot Theater


“Funked Up Fairy Tales,” continues at the Depot Theatre.

WESTPORT — “Funked Up Fairy Tales” opening performance to be held at the Depot Theater, 6705 Main Street, on Friday Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. Additional performances will be held through Aug. 25.

Funked Up Fairy Tales is a collection of delightfully twisted fairy tales for sophisticated children and grown-up kids. Welcome to the world of Titania, Faireetheeya, and Magikwanda, three street-smart teenage fairies with plenty of wise-cracking attitude - and a final Fairyland Academy exam that they must pass to graduate and earn their Happy Ending Crowns. In the process, they turn things upside-down, all to a soundtrack of genre-bending songs that all ages will be singing for days afterward. Funked Up Fairy Tales is an off beat cartoon brought to life onstage, with jokes, songs, and characters that will appeal to all ages, those young of years and those young of heart.

Tickets are $29. For more information call the theater at 962-4449.
