March Break Fun with “Fairy Tale Ending”!
By Kim Whiteman

If you haven’t already started planning ahead for things the kids can do during March Break, then we have something at the Stirling Festival Theatre for all ages to enjoy!

For weeks now, our dedicated group of Young Company members has been rehearsing for their March Break show, Fairy Tale Ending, written by Kieren MacMillan and Jeremy Hutton. The SFT Young Company presents this topsy-turvy yet touching tale of a young girl who questions about the sudden changes occurring in the fairy tales she used to read with her Grandma. While the young girl comes to grips with loss and the reality of growing up, a “line up” of characters the Big Bad Wolf, Goldilocks, The Three Little Pigs, and a very ugly Troll are all questioned while taking part in a police lineup and are all interrogated for their crimes. With the help of the Cop, Jack and The Three (Little Pigs/Bears/Billy Goats/Blind Mice), the young girl learns that though real life may not be a fairy tale, it can be just as great! This witty script, with all your favourite fairy-tale characters and catchy songs, will have you in stitches, moved to tears, and singing along the tunes as you leave the theatre. All of our young company performers are all local students volunteering their time and talents to their community theatre, and their only reward is your attendance and appreciation for their hard work! Fairy Tale Ending runs the week of March Break 11th – 15th and is under the direction of David Vanderlip, SFT Managing Director. All seats are just $10.00 including all taxes. Great family fun for all during the March Break!

During the run of our performance run of Fairy Tale Ending, the Stirling Festival Theatre will be holding a raffle draw for a chocolate pizza and four tickets to our SFT Young Company musical Footloose. Raffle tickets sell for two dollars each or three tickets for five dollars. A winner will be drawn after the intermission of each performance, with the proceeds supporting further young company projects.

There are still tickets available for our St. Patrick’s Day performance of Shamrock Party! The Celtic Dance Company of Canada helps to continue the celebrations a wee bit longer with Celtic music and dance that’s sure to bring out the Irish in everyone on Wednesday, March 19th for one performance only at two o’clock.  Members $34.00, Seniors $36.00 and Non Members $38.00.

All ticket prices for our 2014 season include taxes.
