RESERVE — St. Charles Catholic High School’s spring production, “Haphazardly Ever After” takes audience members through riotous twist and turns in this fairy tale adventure.

“This is a can’t miss, one-of-a-kind fractured fairy tale production like you have never experienced before,” SCC Director of Instruction and Institutional Advancement Courtney Millet said. “It’s a production that will inspire mixed emotions.”

This year’ s production is open to the public for show at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and at the St. John Theatre in Reserve.

Admission is $10 at the door.

“In this live theater production, you will be entertained as the royal king and queen resort to anything and everything to bring back complete harmony before it tears the royal family into shreds,” Director of Production Greer Millet said. “The adult children are completely obnoxious, bratty and creating havoc.”

Greer Millet said the king and queen, like most parents, want their own happily ever after, but in order to accomplish this, the adult children will have to move out.

The parents go through leaps and bounds to achieve this goal. They hire a royal therapist, bring in royal teacher, attempt to find proper suitors to marry off the children and inquire on a fairy godmother before learning how outrageously expensive one can be.

“After every attempt has been unproductive, the queen takes it upon herself to execute this plan, acquiring potions at the Enchanted Depot, like the Home Depot,” Greer Millet said.

“The potions somehow become mixed up, and a lot of haphazard events occur. After a chain of events; somehow they do find a Haphazardly Ever After.”

Courtney Millet said the school wants to thank the River Region Arts and Humanities Council for a recent grant SCC received that was put toward the production.

“Also, we would like to extend a humble thank you to the community for continued support and help as we work together to maintain a focus on the arts and live theatre in the River Parishes,” Courtney Millet said.
