"In the fairy tale criminal justice system, the characters from fairy tales and nursery rhymes are represented by two separate yet equally ridiculous groups: the fairy tale police who investigate the fairy tale crime, and the fairy tale district attorneys who prosecute the fairy tale offenders. These are their stories." Cla-clung! Law & Order for kids? Really? Awesome! And there's another twist! When the Centerstage Campers at Theatre Arlington present Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit, all the performers, who are between the ages 8 and 15, audition the first day of camp, and then learn their lines and blocking and mount the entire show in one week. Sort of like a Rock Lottery mixed with Law & Order, but for kids! Wacky! Oh, and check this out: Tickets are only five dollars. What more could you possibly want?! Two performances a day? Cla-clung! Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit closes Thursday with performances at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Theatre Arlington is located at 305 W. Main St. in Arlington. Tickets may be purchased over the phone by calling 817-275-7661. Visit theatrearlington.org for more information.
