 Fairy Gifts (Tales of Enchantment) is a set of 5 plays written in response to that need. Like most plays designed for Youth Theater, the cast of each play could be all children/young people, a mixture of adults and children, or all adults performing for children.

 The plays are based on unfamiliar fairytales and folktales from around the world, to wit:
“Fairy Gifts” from the French fairy tale by Count de Caylus;
“The Enchanted Deer” based on the German fairy tale “Little Brother and Little Sister”
 by the Brothers Grimm;
“Gems in the Night” adapted from the Punjabi tale “Grasp All, Lose All,” retold by
 Major Campbell, Feroshepore;
“The Golden-Headed Fish” adapted from an Armenian tale retold by Frederic Macler,
 Paris; and
“The House in the Forest” adapted from the German tale, “The House in the Woods”
 retold by the Brothers Grimm and other tale-tellers.

 Three of these plays – “Fairy Gifts,” “The Enchanted Deer,” and “The House in the Forest” – can also be produced as musicals. The music and songs for these have been composed by the author herself and are available separately.

 To produce any of these plays, send a letter of “Intent to Perform” to the author at this address: Ruby L. Agnir, 6119 Weatherwood Circle, Wesley Chapel, FL 33545.
