Childhood Fairy Tales Meet Hollywood Glam in “The Adventures of Rose Red”

Keeping Up With Kids  |  10/25/2017 2:00 pm

Rose Red, Snow White’s little sister, does not buy into the hype of “happily ever after.”

In The Adventures of Rose Red (Snow White’s Less Famous Sister), by Sean Abley, we meet little Rose Red, who is on the cusp of being old enough for celebrity status—just like big sis. Only she’s not sure that fame and fortune are for her. It seems like Snow White and all her friends spend their time keeping the press interested in their supposedly fabulous lives. And Jacob Grimm, the lead reporter, seems to keep exaggerating what actually happens. Can’t a girl just have a nice, quiet life without the craze of being a celebrity?

Children’s Theatre Workshop’s Players Company will present this LA-style take on fairy tales on November 18-19, 2017 at 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm. There are also field trip performances available on November 17 at 9:45 am and 12:30 pm. The Adventures of Rose Red will be presented at the Lois Nelson Theatre, in the Collingwood Arts Center, located at 2413 Collingwood Blvd, Toledo, OH 43620. The show runs at about 50 minutes long.  

Audiences are invited to dress up as their favorite fairy tale character and come early to meet Snow White, courtesy of Point Place Princess Parties. Snow White will be available to meet your little prince or princess 30 minutes before each performance, November 18 and 19.

CTW offers American Sign Language interpretation, courtesy of Interlink Interpreting, at the November 18th 2:00 pm performance. Please contact the office at [email protected]  to arrange for seating if you require this service.
