A WEST-METRO COMMUNITY TRADITION
The Tales & Tails of Folks & Fairies is an original story created by Director Christa Anderson and her staff. The performance is an inspiring West-Metro community tradition that returns to Minnetonka year after year. CREO has been pleased to welcome over 100 novice and pre-professional dancers to experience the process of preparing a large-scale production and perform on the stage! This year’s performance is Saturday, February 9th 2019.
In its 9th season, The Tales & Tails of Folks & Fairies follows the adventures of a little girl struggling to understand and overcome the adversities in life. In our story, the Little Girl is frustrated with the way others see her. Like many, she desires to be far away from her struggles in school, so she wishes her life were like a fairy tale. She gets her wish and falls into an enchanted fairy tale book where she meets classic and beloved fairy-tale characters whose stories intertwine and four beautiful fairies who guide her way. She soon finds that each of the characters she meets have struggles of their own. She learns through her journey that we are quick to focus on that which brings us suffering; when all along, the tools to bring us happiness are close at hand.
