Wayland Middle School seventh- and eighth-graders will perform the play “Mixed Up Fairy Tale,” by Susanna Hargreaves at 7 p.m. Friday, May 19, in the WMS Cafetorium.
It’s a story about fairy tales that get utterly mixed up. Cinderella’s desperately trying to get to the royal ball, but somehow she’s ends up at Rapunzel’s tower. As her Fairy Godmother mistakenly sends her on to the Seven Dwarves’ cottage and Snow White’s castle, Cinderella meets loads of new friends — dwarves, bears, pigs, and witches — all of whom are just as lost and out of place as she is.
When they all finally make their way to the ball, Cinderella finally meets her prince, and they all share a giant fairy tale party “happily” thereafter.
The play is directed by WMS Teachers, Nikkia Robinson and Laura Schreiber. The theater class is part of the school’s Pride Time Enrichment opportunity.
The WUEF provided a grant for the lighting and to Mrs. Patterson’s art class for helping with costumes and set design.
