ROCHELLE — Grimm is a mixed-up musical adventure, featuring many familiar fairy tale characters in a way you’ve never seen.
It’s a show Rochelle Township High School stage veteran Joe Worthington was born for. See it this week at The Studio Rockford Wednesday through Saturday. Tickets and more information can be found online at tickets.thestudiorockford.com.
The musical’s story revolves around if the magic of Grimm’s fairy tales fell into the wrong hands and all the stories were rewritten. What if the happy endings were in danger and it was up to one little red-cloaked girl to assemble a crew to help defeat four evil villains and make everything alright?
And what if that little girl’s story was being written in front of your very eyes as she not only works to save the town of Happily Ever After, but also to discover who she is and what she’s capable of in the process?
Grimm takes everything you thought you knew about your favorite fairy tales and turns it all upside-side down.
With the magic-stealers on the loose, working hard to rewrite the endings to such timeless stories, you’ll find a Cinderella who can’t dance, a Big, Bad Wolf who doesn’t eat meat, a Rapunzel who can’t carry a tune, not to mention a trio of “Prince Charmings” who are anything but.
These characters, along with so many others, will spring to life in a way you’ve never seen before.
