The Arts Council of Wilson and ACT! For Youth are in rehearsal for “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon.”

This wild fairy tale ride will be coming to the Boykin Center April 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. and April 22 at 3 p.m. 

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased at www.wilsonarts.com under the Performing Arts tab, at the Boykin Center box office or by calling 252-291-4329. Concessions will be available.

The final show of the season, “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon,” is directed by Jason Coale and Hannah Slaughter, with technical direction also by Jason Coale. 

In the fast-paced show, two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 Brothers Grimm fairy tales, ranging from classics such as “Snow White,” “Cinderella” and “Hansel and Gretel” to more peculiar, lesser-known stories including “The Devil’s Grandmother” and “The Girl Without Hands.”

The free-form comedy includes lots of audience participation and nutty fun for all ages.
