The Kingdom of Grimm
- by Douglas Post
- directed by Barry Brunetti
- musical direction by Mark Elliot
The first Cunningham Commission for Youth Theatre, THE KINGDOM OF GRIMM is an inspiring new musical for American children's theatre about the magic of storytelling. One winter's day, young Hans stumbles across a key in the woods. It unlocks an enchanted chest that holds the imprisoned Gerhardt the Great and his troupe of traveling players. To show their thanks, the players perform three fairy tales for Hans: The Golden Goose, The Three Huntsmen and The Four Skillful Brothers. Underscored by songs ranging in style from ballads to blues, Hans learns about generosity, loyalty and hard work.
