Fractured Fairytale Of Royal Chaos Is Sure To Delight Kids And Parents

The kids are getting into trouble over at Children’s Theatre of Annapolis, but don’t worry — that’s all part of the show. The latest production from the company, “Haphazardly Ever After,” follows the exploits of a king and queen whose royal children are a royal pain in the neck. The madcap comedy, which will open CTA’s 2015-2016 season, opens October 23 and runs through November 1, with performances at 7:30pm on Fridays, 2:00pm and 7:30pm on Saturdays (no 7:30pm performance on October 31) and 2:00pm on Sundays.

“Haphazardly Ever After” has all the elements that make a show exciting for a cast to perform and an audience to watch. With whimsical costumes, fanciful props and elaborate scenery, the production takes audiences to a faraway kingdom where you can always expect the unexpected.

The scene-stealing cast — a group of talented teens ages 10-18 from all over the region — delivers hilarious, over-the-top characterizations. Leading the cast are Austin Dare as King Barnabas and Ally Baca as Queen Mildred, along with Camille White as aggressive Princess Cinnamon, Geneva Croteau as ditzy Princess Peppermint, Ryan Hoover as narcissistic Prince Hairgel and Matthew Lucente as lazy Prince Slacker.

The tale is narrated by an enthusiastic band of sprites, including Madison Sokolowski as Fairy 1, Katie Garrity as Fairy 2 and Drew Claxton as the Reluctant Fairy. Of course, when storytelling gets too demanding, the trio opts to bring in the Narrator, played by Dave Martinek.

The other colorful characters of the kingdom include the palace servants (Abby Connick and Arden Tierney), a group of elfish shopkeepers (Andrew Wilson, Connor Page and Reid Murphy), a brave page (Diana Rach), a fairy godmother (Chloe Steele), a fairytale inspector (Anna Hancock), a genie (Marlo Wenig) and a magic mirror (Zoe Argabright).

Rounding out the cast are Madison Doyle, Porter Tierney, Allison Vallario, Claire Hatcher, Ryan McDonald, Zach Lijewski, Lucy Lunay, Noelani Segree and Felicity Davis.

To make theatergoing a more welcoming experience, CTA will also have its first-ever sensory-friendly performance at the 2:00pm matinee on Saturday, October 24. To accommodate families of children with autism or other special needs, the show will have reduced light and sound effects, and the house lights will remain on at a low level in the theater during the performance. Patrons will be free to talk and move about during the performance. There will also be an American Sign Language interpretation provided.

For more information or to order tickets, visit www.childrenstheatreofannapolis.org or call the box office at 410-757-ACT1. Loyal fans can also purchase season tickets and enjoy CTA’s other upcoming performances, “Mary Poppins” (January 2016) and “Sleeping Beauty” (April 2016).
