MEEKER | The Meeker High School put on a production of “The Brothers Grimm” on March 11 and 12. The play was a fast-paced show about the fairy tales written by the Grimm brothers.

Two narrators, played by Ridge Williams and Chakwah Brink, and actors Zach Harman, Mason Holliday, John Hampton Hightower, Becca Steerman, Brandon Lazano, Brynlee Williams, Liam Deming, Elijah Deming, Tacy Crawford, Aspen Merrifield, Ruby Holliday and Kate Lockwood, attempted to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more obscure stories like The Devil’s Grandmother and The Girl Without Hands.

It was a successful production that brought in a sell-out crowd. These twists on everyday fairy tales had the crowd laughing from beginning to end.

Shane Kobald, a sophomore at Meeker High School, said, “It was very fun and organized. Everyone seemed to know their lines and were having fun!”

Acting in the play, Elijah Deming said, “It was a great opportunity to leave my comfort zone.” This interactive play was for all ages and there wasn’t a person in the room who wasn’t laughing at some point. Directors Shana Holiday and Janelle Borchard really brought this play to life.
