College actors crank out the stories in ‘The Fable Factory’
By MELINDA MAWDSLEY
The family-friendly production “The Fable Factory” is on stage at Mesa State College.
The entire play was written by Mesa State College students. Professor Jeremy Franklin, director, thinks the show is unique because it “revels in the imagination of both the actor and audience.”
The premise of “Fable Factory” is fairy tales and, in the case of this production, it’s a case of mixed-up fairy tales.
The play is a comedy and is acceptable for children of all ages.
Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Mr. Ant and Mr. Grasshopper are among the characters making appearances.
The actors in the “The Fable Factory” are a mix of senior and freshman students who have worked in children’s theater or are newcomers to the art form.
The play runs on the Robinson Theatre stage at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, April 14–17.
Tickets are available in advance or at the Mesa State box office before the show. Prices are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $5 for students.
Before the Friday, April 16, show, Omar’s Catering will serve a “Play With Your Food” dinner for an additional cost.
