Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. Or did he?

Nobody in Fairy Tale Land seems to know exactly what happened. Did the Big Egg fall, or was he pushed? Detectives Harry Hare and Terry Tortoise are on the case, questioning any and all suspects. Was it Rumpelstiltskin, or Little Red Riding Hood, or Sleeping Beauty, or the Old Woman in the Shoe, or the Pied Piper? Was Cinderella or Goldilocks involved? Or Alice in Wonderland? Or Rapunzel? Or The Little Mermaid? By the end of Act One, the prime suspect is charged with the crime, and goes on trial in Act Two!

THE GREAT FAIRY TALE CAPER is a wild and woolly ride delivered in the fast and funny style of past Acting Out Production hits like THE BIG SNORE and THE NEW LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD.  Hilarity and suspense abound in this delightful show for all ages!
