CAPA Offers Virtual, Family Presentation of GRIMMZ Fairy Tales January 10-30

Posted: December 8, 2021

The Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) will offer a free, online presentation of GRIMMZ Fairy Tales January 10-30. This reimagining of classic fairy tales follows Jay and Will Grimmz, the hip-hop, fable, dance-pop sensation brothers, who have returned to the city where they grew up to give a concert. Their modern-day spin on the Grimm Brothers’ 19th-century collection of popular folklore features hits such as “Snow White and the Seven Shawties,” “Down with Rapunzel,” “Hansel & Gretel: Lost in the Streets,” and their first featured “granny-winning” song, “Cinderella Remix,” in their “hip hop revelation for the younger generation.”

CAPA presents the Experiential Theater Company and the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s production of GRIMMZ Fairy Tales January 10-30. This is a free, virtual presentation that may be viewed anytime within the presentation window by registering online at https://www.capa.com/grimmz. Registrants will then be sent an email with a link to view the production.

This presentation is made possible through the generous support of PNC Bank, The Robert Weiler Company, The Bill Conner Memorial Fund, and The DiMarco Family Fund of The Columbus Foundation. Season support has also been provided by The Columbus Foundation, Greater Columbus Arts Council, Nationwide Foundation, and The Ohio Arts Council.
