“Once Upon A Crime”
February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST
The Florida Chautauqua Theatre announces their production of “Once Upon A Crime”, February 23 and 24 at 7:00 PM and February 25 at 2:30 PM at The Florida Chautauqua Theatre, 840 Baldwin Ave., DeFuniak Springs. The production, directed by Mary Beth Murphy, has a cast of 15 local performers ranging in age from middle school to adult. The play, “Once Upon A Crime”, is a farcical judicial look at some of the most famous fairy tales and folklore stories. Will justice be served in this hilarious fairy-tale courtroom play packed with characters we all know and love? It’s up to your audience, which serves as the jury! Goldilocks is the defendant, on trial for breaking and entering. The plaintiffs are — you guessed it — the three bears. As their lawyers Henny Penny and Tom Thumb go toe-to-toe hoping to prove their respective clients’ cases, other fairy tale characters are called to testify as witnesses, including Hansel and Gretel, Jack and Cow, and Granny. Even the Big Bad Wolf takes the stand, but can any of these witnesses be trusted themselves? Is Goldilocks guilty or innocent? With multiple endings to cover each possible outcome, your audience gets to decide her ultimate fate.
Tickets will go on sale, Monday, February 19 and are $15 for adults and $12 for students, 18 and under. For more information call 850-892-9494.
