Story Theatre

Fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm come to vivid theatrical life in Paul Sills' innovative Yale Repertory Theater production. Taking simple, narrative stories - such classics as "The Golden Goose," "The Blue Light," "The Clever Gretel," "The Goose Girl," and "The Bremen Town Musicians" - Paul Sills eliminated the customary use of sets and costumes and relied instead on the transforming talents of his gifted actors. Utilizing gestures, mime, music and the actors' own imaginations, he has created a fresh and unique theater piece to present these timeless tales.
