about Faery Trail Theater:
The show is interactive, with the audience encouraged to help 'faery' hunters Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright to locate winged sprites in the woods. As if on cue, one likable character after another magically appears from behind trees and shrubs until a whole extended family of fairies (and the occasional troll) has gathered to play out an entertaining drama.
The show is suitable for all ages (the phrase "Nothing scary happens in the woods" is oft repeated along the way), most particularly delighting the open minds of the very young, who all turn out in their favorite dress-up clothes. Never fear, however, if you're short on fairy garb; wings, hats, and fairy dust are all available for sale at the beginning of the 'hunt'.
Advance reservations are not required, but they do provide the added advantage of getting a child's name mentioned in the show.
Faery Trail Theater takes birthday party bookings, either as part of the regular Faery Hunt outing or privately. Individual fairy characters are also available to come to parties as entertainers.
Other programs offered by the company include visits to children in hospitals and group activities like Girl Scout badges.
The show meets at parks around the city, including Corriganville Park one Sunday per month (meeting in the parking lot), O'Melveny Park one Saturday each month, and Griffith Park twice monthly. Rain cancels, as do major holidays.<
