The Not Evil Step Mother

I love working with Ellen Chorley and her company, Promise Productions. Year over year, she produces smart, entertaining and creative theatre shows that challenge young audiences and generally turn known stories on their heads.

This year at the Edmonton International Fringe Festival, Ellen is bringing us a MUSICAL. The show is called The Not Evil Step Mother and she quotes it as saying that it, "turns every fairy tale you’ve ever heard topsy turvy."

I also have to admit that I have a vested interest in the show this year as my wife Derrique is directing it. It promises to be a really fun show for all ages.

Here are the details:
