Granny Possum can't tell her favorite fairy tales because someone really cruel and evil is stealing all the props! Bread crumbs, magic beans, a basket of goodies, a glass slipper — all are missing! Where's a granny to turn? Why, to Nick Tickle, Fairytale Detective, of course! Someone is framing Goldilocks for the thefts and Nick is her only hope. The future of fairytales is at stake and it's up to Nick Tickle, Fairytale Detective, to set things right. With detective reasoning, his connections to the fairy tale underworld, plus some dumb luck, Nick Tickle sets out to locate the Mysterious Figure who's been pilfering all the props! Who is that mysterious figure? What clues can the talking tree divulge? Why is Nick putting on a dress? These and other important questions will be answered in this creative and fun production! There will be lots of audience participation, including a chance for some lucky junior detectives to get up on stage and into the action. Can Nick solve the mystery and save all the fairy tales? Jet Theatrix is calling all junior sleuths and their grown-ups to help solve the biggest case in fairy tale history!

Nick Tickle, Fairy Tale Detective is part of Jet Theatrix’s theatrical outreach program for 2008-the Year of Children’s Theater. The students have been working really hard every day to make this a great production for youngsters and adults alike. After the success of their fall production of Aesop’s (Oh So Slightly) Updated Fables, they can’t wait to show you what they’ve got now!

Tickets will be available in the CCHS front office, as well as at the door.
