Towngate Children’s Theater presents Law and Order: Fairy Tale Unit by Jonathan Rand November 1, 2 and 3. Curtain is at 7pm Friday; 3pm and 7pm Saturday and 3pm Sunday.

This hilarious one-act play parodies the long-running television series Law and Order.

In the fairy tale criminal justice system, the characters from fairy tales and nursery rhymes are represented by two separate yet equally ridiculous groups: the fairy tale police who investigate fairy tale crime, and the fairy tale district attorneys who prosecute the fairy tale offenders. These are their stories.

Tickets are $12.50 ($11 OI members) for adults and $10 ($8.50 OI members) for children 10 & under.

Purchase tickets online or call 304-242-7700.

Experience the Magic of Children’s Theater…

Want to boost literacy? Teach your child to imagine the unimaginable? Cultivate curiosity? Go to the theater, and bring your kids.

Plays ignite the imagination and bring stories to life. Words and characters jump from the page to the stage, thus connecting children to the importance of reading.   They learn valuable lessons, too.  Theater teaches skills such as empathy, critical thinking and teamwork.  Kids watch the actors working together onstage. They see that REAL people are behind entertainment and realize performers are not just images on TV or computer screens.  Live action happens right before their eyes. There’s no app for that!  All their senses are engaged “in the moment.”  Nothing can be paused or muted.  Some may even discover the actor, director or writer within themselves.  Most of all, you get to spend quality time as a family.  Theater is a social experience meant to be shared with one another. So, gather the kids, go to Towngate and experience the magic of theater together.
