Lakeridge Junior High tells truth about fairytales

Lakeridge Junior High students are putting on a production featuring one-act plays of popular fairytales infused with a grain of salt.

The stories featured in “Happily Ever After and Other Lies You Were Told” are “Cinderella,” “The Frog Prince” and “The Little Mermaid.” Teacher and director Amy Gretencort adapted the fairytales for the production.

The show, which opens tonight, plays at 7 p.m. on Nov. 6, 7, 13 and 14. Lakeridge Junior High is located at 4700 Jean Road.
