When brothers Jake and Will Grimm can’t agree on a script, they end up in a fight — pages are swapped, plots intermingled… it’s a complete mess! After all, Jake likes blood and guts, and Will likes fluffy bunnies and happy endings. What’s worse is that the principal is coming to see a production of the show in less than half an hour! The intermingled story line now has Hansel and Jorinda on their way to meet the stage mother and her two evil step daughters, Gretel and Joringel — who’s so happy to be part of the “A” story, he’ll do it in drag. Meanwhile, Rapunzel, who’s been demoted from ingénue to character actress, wants her son, Prince Charming (played by a wise-guy with big-time family connections), to go to the Gingerbread Castle for a ball to meet his true love, the evil witch Cinderella. With name-calling, finger pointing and lots of “I quits,” the entire show collapses just as the principal arrives. But all is not lost! The producer rallies the troops with an incredible cheesy speech, and the cast dishes out the works of the Brothers Grimm in six minutes and 12 seconds. And although they don’t truly succeed, they actually find their own path to happily ever after.
