LEVEL: Medium Crossword by Myles Mellor and Susan Flanagan life & arts the northbrook tower | February 16, 2017 | 23 Musical remixes fairy tales Erin Yarnall Freelance Reporter Magic and adventure are arriving at Edgewood Middle School in the form of “A Fairy Tale Adventure,” the newest musical produced by the Highland Park Players Theater for Young Audiences. The musical follows Hansel, Gretel and Paddy the Gingerbread Man as they try to save happy endings for numerous fairy tale characters that were stolen by the Wicked Witch. The musical features all original music written by JAM — Justin Kono, Aaron Kaplan and Michael Goldman — a trio of musicians who have been working with the Highland Park Players since 2014. “We’ve worked in different capacities with each other for different shows,” Kaplan, a Northbrook resident, said. “This one was different because we got to work collaboratively, all contributing to both the music and the lyrics.” The trio has previously worked on “Winnie the Pooh” for the Highland Park Players, in which they were able to write two original songs, but to have creative musical control with “A Fairy Tale Adventure” was one of Kaplan’s favorite parts of working on the show. “It’s really cool to create something from scratch, something that hasn’t been done before and something that is continually evolving,” Kaplan said. Producer Jamie Davidson also agreed that seeing the creativity the show afforded to everyone involved has been one of the Heidi Hansfield (left) plays Gretel and Molly Jacobson, of Highland Park, is Goldilocks in the Highland Park Players’ production of “A Fairy Tale Adventure,” playing 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Feb. 18-19 at Edgewood Middle School. Photo Submitted most rewarding parts. “It has given an ensemble of 14 actors, three composers, our director and our choreographer a lot of free reign to create the characters, create new music and incorporate it all together with their own take and their own nuances,” Davidson said. “It’s an evolving process where everybody got to put in their own creativity in creating this unique show.” Davidson described the musical as a mix of “The Wizard of Oz,” “Shrek” and “Into the Woods,” because of its positive message, and its appeal to both adults and children. “All the fairy tale characters have to work together to stop the witch, who has put an end to all of the happy endings,” Davidson said. “The message, to children especially, is to be compassionate and understanding, especially when someone is different. All these fairy tale characters that are in the show are very different, but they work together.” Like the stories it takes “A Fairy Tale Adventure” 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Feb. 18-19 Edgewood Middle School, 929 Edgewood Road, Highland Park after, Davidson said the musical is great entertainment for children and adults because of the subtle humor written into the music. “Because they could write their own lyrics and their own tunes, a lot of the lyrics have references to pop culture, musical theater, and for the adults who are there, there’s a lot of clever lyrics and funny bits that they’ll be totally entertained by, along with the children,” Davidson said. “When you’re an adult watching the show, you’re getting all this extra humor that probably goes over the kid’s heads.” Molly Jacobson, who plays Goldilocks, agrees with Davidson. “It’s good for all ages, even though it’s made for little kids,” Jacobson said.
