a Shell of a Troll
a rich troll. his subdued daughter. their human servant. oh, and magical law enforcer fairies. a Shell of a Troll follows the story of Senator Pompe on just another Sunday Gun Day. (some adult content, crude bigotry, political spitfire, and tears of laughter, or perhaps sorrow may apply) – on a Shell of a Troll by St. Louis native D. Jasper Sussman, a political absurdist surrealist murder mystery drama comedy opera in 20 minutes
Cendrillon spends all of her time taking care of her hopeless sisters and incompetent Baron father instead of following her true passion of social and environmental activism. But when the Prince comes in disguise looking for the woman who keeps writing scathing political letters to the palace, Cendrillon finds herself transported to the ball by her over-enthusiastic Fairy Godmother. Will Cendrillon ever get her wish? – Cendrillon by Pauline Viardot translated and updated by Caetlyn Van Buren
Snow White Turns Sixty
Snow White Turns Sixty is a set of twelve retellings of traditional fairy tales. Some are modern updates; some are twisted reinterpretations. Collectively, the songs retell traditional fairy tales in provocative, gory, humorous, dark, sexy, violent, joyful, and ultimately liberating ways, as each character discovers a new and previously untold element of her particular story. All use texts by contemporary female poets. – Snow White Turns Sixty by Dale Trumbore
