   Ripon High School Drama Club presents “The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon” by Don Zolidis. The play turns the Brothers Grimm’s fairy tales on their heads as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics such as “Snow White,” “Cinderella” and “Hansel and Gretel” to more bizarre, obscure stories such as “The Devil’s Grandmother” and “The Girl Without Hands.” It includes never-heard-before backstories for characters and audience participation.

   Show times are Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for students.
