A MUSICAL that goes wrong for all the right reasons, Once Upon A Fractured Fairytale is written by kids for kids.

Created and presented by the students from JETS (Joondalup Entertainers Theatre School), the Fringe World Festival show follows the journey of an evil sorceress who wants to rule the world with a plan to capture the fairytale characters and send them to an altered universe.

JETS principal Ros Boyer said the performance was an inspiring show starring both its musical students and JetsAbility students for youth with disability, with ages ranging from 11 to 17.

“We are so excited to be giving kids of all abilities the chance to experience the incredible joy of being a part of Fringe World Festival,” she said.

“We wanted to work with our students to create and deliver their own artistic work and educate them on being professionals involved in the arts.

“From concept, workshop and teamwork, we are proud to present a musical written by kids for kids.

“Our goal is to inspire all kids of all abilities and backgrounds that creativity and performing arts is an avenue they can all explore in a fun and engaging way.”

The 55-minute show will run in the Big Top at The Woodside Pleasure Garden at 1.20pm on February 8,9, 15, 16.
