Description
Everyone's favorite gumshoe is back with another thrilling adventure! Old Granny Possum is entertaining us with her slightly irregular version of "Snow White and Just the Two Very Tall Dwarves" when she's kidnapped by Bluebeard and his band of scurvy pirates! Thank goodness Nick Tickle has been hired to get her back. Can he outwit the kidnappers and save her or is she gone for good? He'll need any help he can get with this tough case - fortunately, Puss In Boots is ready to lend a paw and some lucky audience member will get the chance to help Nick question the pirates. Will Rumplestiltskin and Mrs. Stiltskin be of any help and if so, will Nick have to give them a baby? Why has the Fairy Godmother turned Cinderella into a cow? Can the evil Queen Cupcake convince the Magic Mirror that rapping is not an acceptable form of delivering royal proclamations? We can only hope.

As usual, there's lots of audience participation, and since this 60 minute show requires only a single simple set and as few as 6 performers (or as many as 17), it's easy and fun to stage. This sequel to the very popular Nick Tickle, Fairy Tale Detective is great for touring, too.

History

"The Further Adventures of Nick Tickle" was first performed by the Chatham Middle School Drama Club at the Chatham High School auditorium on Cape Cod, Massachusetts on December 12, 2008.
