Child actors dressed up as Humpty Dumpty and the Kingsmen pose for the Fidgety Fairy Tales rendition of the story that addresses trauma.

Once upon a time…

familiar fairy tales were re-imagined as delightful 40-minute musical theatre performances.  Fidgety Fairy Tales – The Mental Health Musicals use gentle humor, great music, and compelling performances by talented youth to raise awareness about children’s mental health.

The 2017 Spring Tour takes place March 7-31, 2017, and includes a stop at Children’s Home & LSS on March 23! If this time and date doesn’t work for you, see the entire tour schedule here. The 9th original production features three new stories:

    • Humpty Dumpty (trauma)
    • The Three Little Pigs (anxiety)
    • The Ugly Duckling (bullying)

Scripts have been reviewed by mental health professionals, parents, and youth with mental health disorders.  Fidgety has been recognized nationally by SAMHSA’s Resource Center to Promote Acceptance, Dignity, and Social Inclusion Associated with Mental Health (ADS Center).  Fidgety has also been recognized as a program of high artistic quality through grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, Minnesota State Arts Board, and the St. Paul Cultural STAR Program.
