Fairy Tales And Twists In SYAA Production

Fairy tale characters get swept up into one another's stories in Strauss Youth Academy For The Arts production, Jack, Rapunzel, Red, and You!

The original work from SYAA Executive Director Walter Allen combines the classic tales in an unpredictable, hilarious, and interactive storyline.  "It's where three characters fight over trying to tell their story to the audience.  And what happens is, they decide to share, but wind up finding themselves in each other's story," says Allen.

Add to that, audience members called on in cameo appearances and show takes some hilarious turns.

The show runs this weekend at the Strauss Youth Academy on Lamy Lane in Monroe.  More information at
