Fairy tales come alive at DHS drama fundraiser

From page A9 | September 19, 2011 |

Davis’ Central Park will be transformed Sunday into a fairy tale land filled with knights, a dragon, princes, princesses and Renaissance games as the Davis High School drama department presents Faerie Tale Frenzy: A Children’s Carnival from 1 to 4 p.m.

DHS drama students will dress in costume and host an afternoon filled with games and activities for children. Children can participate in hair braiding, arts and crafts, three-legged races and fishing games, and have their picture taken with the King and Queen of the park.

A wristband will entitle a child to all the afternoon’s activities; adults will be admitted free. The wristband costs $12 in advance and may be purchased at a booth at Saturday’s Farmers Market in Central Park, Fourth and C streets, or online at www.dhsdrama.net. Wristbands also will be sold at the event, for $15 each.

Children can become knights of the court with the additional purchase of a $3 Quest Card. Once a child has found all of the treasures on this scavenger hunt card, the herald of the court will announce to the park the knighting of this child.

Davis High School’s improvisation group, Fairie Tales on Request, will perform throughout the afternoon. Children can create their own fairytale story and watch as this group of 10 DHS students act it out in the park. Drama students in costume also will stage a surprise theatrical performance at the start of every hour.

The proceeds from this event will help fund the DHS drama department’s trip next August to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. DHS was one of 51 high schools chosen to perform at this international arts festival. Twenty-four DHS drama students, along with director Gwyn Bruch, will perform Moliere’s “Tartuffe” in Edinburgh.

In order to make this trip possible, DHS drama students will be fundraising this school year to collect the necessary $100,000 to fund the trip.

For more information about the DHS drama department and the Scotland trip, visit www.dhsdrama.net or stop by the booth at the Farmers Market.
