Once Upon a Murder is an improvisational interactive murder mystery.
The story begins as several characters from fairytale land who have a “bad rep” join Goldilocks at FairyCon to hear how she turned things around for herself to be celebrated despite some bad acts in her past. As the story begins, it turns out someone has murdered Goldilocks. The detective will need to crack the case by interviewing a wild cast of characters.

The Ensemble members involved in this play had the ability to create unique characters and develop improvisational skills. Our Ensemble is a theatre-based leadership group that focuses on personal development to help Tuscaloosa youth reach their full potential. The program is sponsored by the Board of Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre and open to students from around the West Alabama area. Participants are selected from rising 9th grade students through rising 12th grade students.
In addition to acting opportunities unique to them, Ensemble members act as ambassadors for TCT, performing at nursing home and community events, and providing community service and outreach. Learn more about becoming a member!
