The Great Fairy Tale Race
Book by Carter Allen
Original Music by Mitchell Smith
This year, we will be performing a new original show called The Great Fairy Tale Race. In this show, students will meet the Brothers Grimm as they attempt to write more stories than their uppity neighbor, Mother Goose. During the show, students will learn about three of the Grimm Brother’s best stories, but also the structure and process of writing a story in a fun and hilarious adventure. The students in the audience will be asked to add their own ideas to each of the stories and will even be asked to come up on stage to participate in the show! This exciting and interactive story will bolster not only your student’s interest in reading, but also in their interest in writing stories of their own.
"Fabulous! A real crowd pleaser for the students and teachers, and we love not having to deal with a bus and transporting students!"
- Liberty Elementary Teacher
"Seeing a book on-stage reaches all types of learners and inspires them to read.
Not a single child wasn't engaged with the play. I love that the actors came out into the audience and got the kids excited over reading and performing arts."
- Clemson Elementary Teacher
Since 2000, Greenville Theatre on Tour has inspired over 200,000 elementary students through the magic of live theatre. GT on Tour brings shows directly to your school, eliminating the need for field trip details and buses. GT on Tour performances are tailored for students from Kindergarten to fifth grade. Each production has a cast of professional actors, scenery, and costumes that are performed in your gym, multipurpose room, and yes, even your cafeteria!
Following the performance, the actors hold a 'talk back' session with the students, allowing the children to ask any questions they may have about the show or the actors. GT on Tour selects shows from school reading lists, and to help integrate our performance into the classroom, we provide a study guide created by a curriculum expert according to Common Core standards!
GT on Tour Productions of Treasure Island (2022-23), Miss Nelson Is Missing (2019-20), Junie B. Jones Is Not A Crook (2018-19), and Charlotte's Web (2017-18).
