Collecting teeth and delivering quarters is tiring work, and The Tooth Fairy is ready for a vacation! Luckily, she meets a young boy named Samuel who is sick and tired of being a kid, and all the rules that go with it. But when Samuel and the Tooth Fairy arrange to switch places, nothing goes exactly as planned as adventures ensue across the Upper West Side of Manhattan and throughout New York City.Â A (Tooth) Fairy TaleÂ is a wild, silly adventure filled with shiny quarters, sugary candy and learning who you’re really meant to be.
The cast ofÂ A (Tooth) Fairy TaleÂ includesÂ Jamie C. Anderson,Â Cory Lawson,Â Emily Maixner,Â Katrina Michaels,Â Jen Morris,Â Joel Stigliano, andÂ Andreas Wyder. The crew includes DirectorÂ Linda Ames Key, Set DesignerÂ Kyle Dixon, Costume DesignerÂ Sarah Riffle, Lighting DesignerÂ Josh Bradford, Musical DirectorÂ Mike Pettry, ChoreographerÂ Tim Connell, and Production Stage ManagerÂ Kelly Burns.
