KidsPlay Inc. children’s theatre presents Eddie McPherson’s comedy “Fractured,” April 20, 21 and 22 at the H.J. Ricks Centre for the Arts, 122 W. Main St. “Fractured,” a fairy tale spoof packed with familiar and stock characters, breaks the fourth wall as Princess Esmeralda (Olivia Greer) falls in love with Lance A. Lot (Luke McCartney) from the real world. When the King (Owen Sickels) and Queen (Brynn Elliott) learn of their daughter’s romance, they banish Lance and strip Esmeralda’s helpful fairy godmother (Olivia Alldredge) of her powers. In the meantime, everyone in the kingdom is stuck in limbo because no one is reading fairy tales anymore. Cinderella (Heaven Keesling) can never have her glass slipper, Jack (Max Everhart) can never climb his beanstalk, Beauty (Ella Miesse) will always be in love with a beast (Nolan Roots). Esmeralda must come up with a plan to bring Lance back and get all the stories back on track so that everyone can finally have a happily-ever-after. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:00 p.m. and the Sunday matinee is at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are available for $5 at Hometown Comics, 1506 N. State St., or at the door an hour before performance time. For more information, called 317-294-3087 or visit KidsPlay Inc. on Facebook.
