This two-part production delivers fairy-tale fun designed for and performed by children. In Folk Tale Hootenanny, the scrappy kids of Pigeons With Teeth reimagine traditional lore for today's wired world. Their creations include beat-boxing barnyard animals and, in "Jersey Dwarves," a harrowing look at what happens when Dopey, Sleepy, and the rest of Snow White's diminutive pals get spray tans and go clubbing. Hootenanny is followed by Baba Yaga, a "modern American" version of the classic Russian story about a crotchety old crone, written by Reader contributor Jack Helbig. With its clear, lively dialogue and peppering of witticisms, Helbig's adaptation has something to offer adults as well as kids. Under Amy Eaton's direction, the child actors in both pieces demonstrate spunk, teamwork, and a flair for developing memorable characters. Presented as a Rhinofest entry. —Marissa Oberlander
