“Once Upon A Time” comes to life in Monmouth

MONMOUTH — “Tales from the Blue Fairy Book,” will be staged June 28-Aug. 21 at Cumston Hall, 796 Main St. The event is sponsored by MaineGeneral Health.

The Theater at Monmouths production is story about a girl stuck at her grandmother’s house with no cellphone reception or internet. Violet reluctantly turns to “The Blue Fairy Book” for entertainment. Soon the characters come to life — literally — and pull Violet and her grandmother into their magical tales, leading this 21st-century young girl on a once-upon-a-time adventure of the imagination.

The story bursts with classic tales from around the globe, including East of the Sun West of the Moon, The Bronze Ring, The White Cat, The Stars in the Sky, and more. From princesses to fairies, kings to dwarfs, there’s a magical happily ever after for both girls and boys.

Performances are set for 7 p.m. Saturday, and 1 p.m July 5, 12, 19, 26, Aug. 5, 7, 12, 14, 19 and 21. Tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for children.
