Heineman students to perform 'Law & Order' spoof

ALGONQUIN – Students from Heineman Middle School will be performing the comedic play “Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit” at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the auditorium of the school, 725 Academic Drive.

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 fairy tale crime, and the fairy tale district attorneys who prosecute the fairy tale offenders. These are their stories.

The production is a “Law & Order” spoof depicting crimes occurring on Fairy Tale Lane. Join detectives H.D. (Humpty Dumpty) and Cindy (aka Cinderella) as they and their partners try to discover just who is responsible for huffing, puffing and blowing houses down. “Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit” is a delightful play combining the popular TV series and many beloved but fractured fairy tales.

The play is written by Jonathan Rand and directed by Heineman Middle School teacher Jenny Charles.

Tickets are $5 and can be bought at the door.
