“It's exciting to be in a new space that has so much to offer us: a beautiful outdoor performance spot plus a versatile indoor space in the case of inclement weather,” says Jasensky. “It's also exciting to be supporting Workspace's program and to help spread the word about what they are doing in their amazing facility. They have been so welcoming to us, and we are so happy to be there!” 


“I think parents will not only enjoy our performances but will also be impressed and intrigued by what Workspace has to offer,” she adds. “Between Fairy Tale Theater and Workspace, a great 
partnership has been born!”






    20th SEASON! 



      Musicals at Richter's Fairy Tale Theater is now in its nineteenth season of theater for children. Parents and their children enjoy a different story each Saturday morning in July. Prior to the show, each child has the opportunity to meet, and receive a special gift from, Mother Goose as well as participate in a craft activity related to that day's performance. Each show is interactive with song and movement, and many of the children in the audience join the actors onstage to become part of the story. With birthday celebrations during intermission, a visit to Fairy Tale theater will undoubtedly be memorable for the whole family!

And now there's much rejoicing in the kingdom: In case of inclement weather, the production will move indoors, so you won't have to miss any of the fun! (Fairy tales DO come true!)




Families are invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets for performance seating. Grounds open at 10:30 a.m. Performance at 11:00 a.m.
All tickets are $5.00
