PCPA Theaterfest, Solvang Centennial Committee to Host Opening Night Celebration of ‘My Fairytale’

Aug. 27 event offers the opportunity to meet the show's creative team

From 5:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, PCPA Theaterfest and the Solvang Centennial Committee will host the Opening Night Celebration benefit reception for the U.S. premiere of My Fairytale.

Guests will have the exclusive opportunity to meet the show’s creative team, including composer Stephen Schwartz, author Philip LaZebnik, creator Flemming Enevold, director Scott Schwartz and PCPA Artistic Director Mark Booher, while enjoying local wines and appetizers created by Chef Bradley Ogden.

Tickets to the event, at the Hotel Corque at 420 Alisal Road in Solvang, are $75 and can be purchased through the PCPA box office at 805.922.8313 or by clicking here. Limited tickets for opening night of My Fairytale are still available and priced at $39.75 for adults, with discounts for students, children and seniors.

Tickets to the Opening Night Celebration do not include admission to the opening night performance of My Fairytale.

My Fairytale is a musical about legendary Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. It’s an enchanted journey into the imagination of one of the world’s greatest storytellers — a place of wonder, mystery and danger — where Andersen confronts the characters from his fairytales. My Fairytale was originally produced in Denmark in 2005 in honor of the bicentennial of Andersen’s birth.

“I’ve always felt that Solvang was the perfect place to present My Fairytale,” Schwartz said. “The fact that this show will now be produced in celebration of Solvang’s centennial makes it seem even more special to me.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
