Our second Enchantment Everywhere production brings yet another Grimm fairy tale to life, The Brave Little Tailor. We are thrilled with the success of this production. Through a seven-week spring 2015 tour and a two-week fall 2015 tour, we reached nearly 15,000 children and families. We brought The Brave Little Tailor to 45 school and community venues, including the Free Library of Philadelphia, Smith Memorial Playground and Morris Arboretum.
About the Show
This delightful tale from the Brothers Grimm is about a feisty little tailor who kills seven flies in one blow. Impressed with his own accomplishment, he creates a sash with the words “Seven in One Blow” and, wearing it, sets off to make his fortune. But everyone he meets assumes that he has killed seven knights, not seven flies. Faced with a series of challenges, the tailor rises to meet each one. Using his pluck, courage and intelligence he defeats two evil giants, conquers a rampaging rhinoceros, saves the kingdom from a ferocious dragon, and wins the hand of a Princess too!
With expressive masks, life-size puppets, original music and imaginative scenic effects, Enchantment brings this beloved story to life in its uniquely magical way!
