Once Upon a Time at Wild Swan Theater in Ann Arbor

Gear up for yet another creative production from this Washtenaw County theater troupe, running for just one weekend. Catch the show Oct. 15-17, 2015.

A trio of classic tales pops out of the storybook pages and onto the Wild Swan Theater stage when the Ann Arbor theater group performs Once Upon a Time Oct. 15-17, 2015.

Three thespians and a musician perform what the theater troupe calls a “fast-paced” production of The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Reynard the Fox and The Three Little Pigs. Prepare for silliness, humor and creative characters – but also for the ageless lessons at the heart of these timeless tales. The live music by David Mosher woven into the stories brings another layer of life and amusement to the show. Plus, there will be audience participation throughout Once Upon a Time, bringing kids into the story (they’ll love the chance to trick Reynard the Fox for themselves!)

Kids who are deaf don’t have to miss out on the fun of the play, as Shelly Tocco, an American Sign Language performer, joins the crew to make the show equally as engaging for those with a hearing impairment. For those with special needs, there will be wheelchair seating, an audio description and backstage touch tours, too.

This is a perfect opportunity to introduce little ones to the magic of the theater, as the show is aimed at those ages 3-9. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for kids and seniors, and discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Have a little one 2 and younger? Buy a lap pass for $3.

Head to Towsley Auditorium in Ann Arbor for Once Upon a Time at the following dates and times:

  • Thursday, Oct. 15: 10 a.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 16: 10 a.m. and noon
  • Saturday, Oct. 17: 11 a.m.
