Musical Fairy Tale

Musical Fairy Tale requires 5-7 players, plus a proctor and musician. The proctor asks the audience for a different musical style for each player, and then asks for an audience memberís favorite childhood fairy tale. The players, directed by the proctor, take turns singing the fairy tale in their individual styles. Each player moves the story forward from where the previous player left off until the story is complete.

This is a challenging game that demands a lot of all who participate. Below are links to some suggestions on how to approach the game, given from three different perspectives. There's also a link to summaries of popular fairy tales, which was researched and compiled by Jack Hourigan.
