Nov. 15- 16 and 22-23

It’s a book. It’s a very funny book. It’s an award-winning book. And now it is a play at the Norvell Theater. Performances are Friday, Nov. 15, Saturday, Nov. 16 and Friday Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. There will be matinees on the two Saturdays at 2:30 p.m.

Stinky Cheese Man takes many famous tales such as Chicken Little, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, and The Princess and the Pea and turns them on their heads.

The book turned young people’s books upside down by poking fun at such elements as the title of the book, the table of contents, and the afterword. The play takes the same attitude as it treats the narrator and many of the stories with a total lack of respect.

Characters break out of their own stories to get involved in other fairy tales. Sometimes, if the Narrator thinks a tale is stupid he just stops the story and moves on to the next tale.

Reviews of both the book and the play have commented on the fact that adults like The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales as much as children do. So, bring the family and come to the Norvell Theater and let the cast of Stinky Cheese Man tell you a few twisted stories.

This performance of The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales is returning to downtown Salisbury after appearances at the Arts and Ag Festival at Pattersons Farm Oct. 26-27. See it while you can. It won’t be here forever.
