The Winder-Barrow Community Theatre is presenting a theatrical experience tailored for children this weekend.
The play “Twice Upon a Time” opens Friday, July 20, at the Colleen O. Williams Theater at the Winder Cultural Arts Center.
Tickets are $5 for ages 12 and younger and $10 for those 13 and older and are on sale now at Winder City Hall and can be purchased using credit cards, cash or checks. Tickets are also on sale at Pam Veader’s State Farm Insurance Office at 41 S. Center St. in Winder.
The Friday and Saturday shows will be at 7:30 p.m., and the Sunday show will be at 3 p.m.
The play, directed by Billie Nye-Muller, takes three beloved fairy tales and gives them a twist. The first of the three interwoven tales tells the story of Cinders Charming (Cinderella), trying to be a good princess. But that’s easier said than done when the overpowering Queen of Aboodistan storms into the Charming kingdom threatening war if she doesn’t get her way.
In the second story, poor Pinocchio is failing school because the Blue Fairy never got around to finishing the job of giving him the head of a real boy. His nasty teacher, Miss Grimsnot, becomes prey for the clever Lampwick and his friend, Foxy. When Pinocchio finds out, he uses his wooden head to save the day.
In the final story, Snow White has opened her own fashion boutique, but that doesn’t stop her wicked stepmother, up to her old tricks again, from making an encore appearance.
After each show, the audience is invited to attend a reception to meet the cast and crew.
