Studio Theater

Cinderella in the 70's? Rapunzel in the 60's? Come enjoy this zany comedy as Beck Center preteens give a new meaning to “once upon a time” when they set all your favorite fairy tales and fables in different decades. This retro comedy will be the bee's knees, groovy and totally tubular! From the director of last year’s Law & Order: Nursery Rhyme Unit, and the author of the uproarious All Greek To Me.
