It has appealed to many different age groups from preschool to adults.  Each group has responded very positively to the performance.  Grades four and up seem to absorb the mental health message more easily, although we have been at schools with strong mental health curriculum where kindergarteners have asked very poignant questions.

    1. Thank you for reminding us about this awesome resource, Renee. We hadn’t updated the entry since 2015. Fidgety Fairy Tales is still offered through MACMH, however, like most theatre in the Twin Cities, live shows are on hiatus because of Covid19. Last year, they added a couple on-demand videos to their site. The entry is now updated with links to the live-show calendar and to the on-demand videos.
