Off We Fly Now - world premiere at Shoreline Community College

Wednesday, May 23, 2018


Director: Duygu Erdogan Monson. Asst. Director / Stage Manager: Danny Bracy. Choreographers: Annika Knapp / Ferandi Yennas. Animators: Kara O’Connor / Shannon Amdal


Shoreline Community College Theater presents the world premiere of Off We Fly Now which will be performed as a mixed media experience in collaboration with Shoreline’s Visual Communications Program to combine live action with animation.

Snow White, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Sleeping Beauty, have found a way to escape from their centuries old fairy tales. Arriving in the “real world” they quickly attract the attention of the media and the public. 
As the four attempt to discover the meaning of life, they end up becoming reality show celebrities. Then they begin to realize that the real world, similar to the fairy tale world, is full of tricks and traps. Fame, love, youth and marriage are each unsolved riddles.

Off We Fly Now challenges the boundaries between fairy tales and the truth. Perhaps, after all, the tales were written to prepare us for life in the real world.

“... and they lived happily ever after…”

Main Characters: Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Deer, Apple, Horse, Journalists, Rapunzel, Ensemble.

Tickets:
General Admission: $16
Seniors 60+, Faculty, Staff and Non SCC Students: $12
SCC Students, Children 12 and under: $10

SCC Theatre, 1600 Bldg., 16101 Greenwood Ave. N., Shoreline 98133. 206-546-4728.

Depicting a Disney character holding an obvious alcoholic drink and smoking is just asking for a lawsuit from the entertainment behemoth. Bad taste.
