The Box Theatre Co.
Auditions Tuesday August 14th at 6:00pm
You think you know the story of Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, and The Frog Prince, but you’re wrong. Molly (along with her madcap theatre troupe) is out to set the record straight. Follow the adventures of a claustrophobic Cinderella, a noble steed who dreams of passing the bar exam, a cat named Kevin, and more in this fun and (mostly) truthful homage to the Brothers Grimm. An original children’s play and world premiere production, written by Milwaukee Playwright, Deanna Strasse.
