Where Do You Get Your Ideas?
Fractured Fairy Tales


Fractured Fairy Tales are very popular with children. They combine familiar stories with a sense of humor. Think of what's hot in kids' pop culture and go from there. For example, How the Grinch Stole Christmas live action was popular in the winter of 2000. That led our Youth Advisory Committee to create How the Grinch Stole Summer Vacation. You don't have to be original! Dramatizing some popular fractured fairy tales can be a very successful outing!
