About the Book
Nostalgia meets modernity in Jazzed Up Fairy Tale Musicals and Bible Plays: Plays for Inner-City Kids. This collection of plays combines the old fashioned charm of fairytales by The Brothers Grimm and traditional biblical stories with contemporary music, giving a unique perspective on these classics. With spinoffs of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Princess and the Pea, and even the birth of Jesus Christ, and more, all containing modernized language and ample humor, Gail Phillips breathes new life into traditional theater.
