What secrets and treasures can be found in the attic of one’s house? While hiding away from the world below, Little One will answer that question as she explores the struggles of loss and the rediscovery of what it means to love, live, and persevere through the whimsical fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. A journey complete with magic, music, dancing, puppets, and so much more!

Reviews

It's a coming-of-age story (or should I say "bildungsroman") that pokes fun at the Brothers Grimm. Several works it references include the lesser-known "Duration of Life", "Bearskin" and "The Hare and the Hedgehog". This inventive little piece of theater will have you laughing and crying thanks its comical performances and outstanding puppetry—and heavier themes that remind you of the pains of growing up. A must see! Watch it before it's gone.

A heartfelt show with a benevolent message, performed by a charming and committed cast. Rich enough for adults but accessible to younger audience members as well. Frequent humor keeps even the dark moments buoyant. While some plot details cause speed bumps, the overall experience is warming and enjoyable.

Ain’t all so Grimm is a whimsical story that showcases the short stories from the Brothers Grimm! The storyteller has his own story that needs to be told, little one gets him to tell it! The writer captured all of the stories that we knew as kids and gave them a twist that will have you in stitches by the end!! The cast truly brought these stories to life, the intimacy, connection they have with each other comes out in their performance. This show really is magical, it is true must see!!

This is a lovely show about a young girl who escapes into some Grimm's fairy tales (the darker variety, not the Disneyfied versions) with the help of some puppets-come-to-life. It has a couple of musical numbers, along with comedy, tragedy, drama and farce. The actors all play multiple characters, including some really clever animals made from various found objects. The cast has great chemistry, and the evening goes by quickly. Definitely worth seeing!

Do you remember opening a new book in the days of your youth? The excitement and anticipation? Director Jennifer Chun and writer Robert J Watson along with their totally committed cast have a nostalgic, lovely surprise for you. “ Ain’t All So Grimm“ reminds us of how it feels to suffer in the attic with our toys and stories while the real world trembles beneath us and demands that we leave our childhood behind. But sometimes it’s just the one last look in the closet, where memories and innocent adventures are stored that gives us the strength we need to go on. Come see “Grimm” and be refreshed and made hopeful again.

Ain’t so Grimm is a delight! A unique fantasy that will keep you mesmerized. Touching, funny it’s musical mayhem at its best.

Thoroughly charming and heartstrings-pulling, this show is filled with talented performers and a great story. I really recommend this one.

A wonderful retelling of some lesser known Grimm's fairytales in the structure a larger story about escapism and solace, with a imaginative use of props. The cast does a heartfelt and hilarious job of storytelling. Would definitely see again.

Robert J. Watson revisits some less well-known Grimm fairy tales in this heartfelt, if somewhat episodic and uneven, tale of a young girl who seeks refuge from family strife in the attic by imagining her toys coming to life and acting out various Grimm stories. The performances are energetic and winning, and director Jennifer Novak Chun adds some delightful theatrical flourishes as the players transform (with the help of common attic props) into various talking animals.

This is a charming show put on my an outstanding cast! The production made great use of their space, and included some very cool found-object puppeteering that is practically worth the price of admission on its own!
