Shade Tree Players Presents Best of Both Worlds

A musical by Flip Kobler, Cindy Marcus, and Dennis Poore

August 8, 9 at 7:00 PM and August 10 at 2:00 PM

The best - and worst! - of both worlds meet when fantasy meets the harsh reality of school in this toe-tapping, pop musical adventure! When Cinderella’s stepsisters find a portal to another world, they get zapped in a very real high school and decide to never return. After all, in this world, mean girls are popular! A comically ambitious Woodsman who dreams of being a storybook hero pursues the stepsisters to bring them back and recruits the help of Danica, a hard-core realist who never believed in fairy tales and only sees the dark side of life. Meanwhile, the fairy tale world is left in shambles with the Woodsman gone. Little Red is attacked by the wolf, and Sleeping Beauty keeps pricking her finger on the ax while chopping her own firewood! It’s time for the princesses to become their own heroes and discover that they can take care of themselves!
