The Odebolt-Arthur/Battle Creek-Ida Grove High School will present “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon” by Don Zolidis, April 12, at 7 p. m., in the Bart Ogden Gymnasium in Odebolt.

The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories, ranging from classics like “Snow White,” “Cinderella” and “Hansel and Gretel” to more bizarre, obscure stories like “The Devil’s Grandmother” and “The Girl Without Hands.” This year’s play is a wild, free-form comedy, with lots of audience participation and madcap fun.
