SIDNEY–Find out what happens when a couple strikes it rich after they find a magic talking fish and the wife’s greed brings consequences into their fairytale life. 

Montcalm Community College’s drama class presents “The Fisherman and His Wife,” adapted by Claudia Haas, Nov. 4 and 5 at 2 p.m. in the Barn Theater on the college’s Sidney campus. Admission is free.

When a fisherman finds a magic talking fish, he is grateful for the fortune but is happy to continue his way of life. However, his wife takes advantage of the situation, causing the couple to experience the perils of greed with the help of the narrator, Scatman L’Adore, and the audience. 

Cast members include Brendan Doolittle, of Sheridan, as Scatman L’Adore; Bethani Christie, of Edmore, as Jonner, the fisherman; and Jessie Tribbette, of Saranac, as Maura, the fisherman’s wife. MCC Drama Class Instructor Carolyn Johnson is the director and Katelynne Bills, of Howard City, is the light and sound technician.

“The Fisherman and His Wife” is originally a fairytale by Brothers Grimm. Haas’s adaptation is interactive fun for the whole family and is appropriate for young audiences.
