A night of laughs


The Tiger Theater Company will be performing two one-act plays Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Sullivan Performing Arts Center. “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon” and “Law and Order: Fairy Tale Unit” are two fun-filled fiction plays with original spins on the Grimm classics.

“These shows are pretty different than a traditional play,” theater director Micah McBay said. “I think they will be well received and that the students will love them.”

This production is unique in that it is actually two one-act plays. “The Brother’s Grimm Spectaculathon” is a hilarious attempt by five actors to perform all of the Grimm Brother’s fairy tales in only 45 minutes.

“Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit” is a comedy about classic fairy tale characters solving the mystery of who blew down the homes of the Three Little Pigs in a adaptation of the “Law & Order” television show.

The cast members of both plays enjoy working together and are excited to see the outcome of the productions.

“I really like working with the cast,” sophomore “Grimm” cast member Cara Fowler said. “I’m also looking forward to making the audience laugh because it’s really really funny.”

Other cast members are ready to see their hard work pay off through the audience’s reaction.

“I’m looking forward to opening night and getting laughs from the audience,” senior “Law & Order” cast member Alex Walker said. “I think they will like the ridiculous lines we say with total seriousness.”

Although these shows are different from the average play, the cast is excited to bring another production to the theater.

“There are lots of costume changes, lots of different characters, and lots of laughs,” McBay said. “The show is hilarious.”
