Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Charles City Middle School Drama Students present the 2021 play. The production is set in a COVID world where all the fairy tale characters deal with virtual life. This year's play is completely recorded, produced, and even the backgrounds are designed by students modeling the Charles City Community School's mission of creating compassionate competent problem solvers.

Fairy tales may not have the magic of technology, but they do have magic! And through the wonders of the magic mirror, even fairy tales can come to life for the virtual stage!
The Evil Queen wishes to be fairest of them all. But when her Magic Mirror informs her that it is Snow White who is most fair, the queen is livid! When asked how to find the princess, her mirror mentions that Snow White has run away. The Evil Queen summons great magic in hopes of finding Snow White — she can now look through all mirrors throughout the kingdom. But there’s a catch... the magic also allows everyone else’s mirrors to show them what they most wish to see.
Best-selling fractured fairy tale playwright Brian D. Taylor creates storytelling magic with these magic mirrors, and it’s all written specifically for rehearsing and performing remotely! Rapunzel gets to talk with Prince Dashing, who’s outside of her tower, Beauty sees the Beast who has taken her father prisoner, and Cinderella, who just wants to dance at the ball, gets connected to her Fairy Godmother. And there’s plenty more fun! All these stories are moving toward their happily ever afters while the Evil Queen is hunting down Snow White, and you can guess that one will have a happy ending, as well!
