A free 4-part family musical web-series
Once upon a story, on a bookshelf up high;
In a cluster of words, in the dot of an ‘i’;
Many fairy-tales fused as their pages combined,
Bringing three girls together, their fates intertwined.
But why they are here and what they should do,
Is the mystery to solve, and they need help from you...
Once upon a time 3 self(ie)-obsessed strangers were plunged through the pages of your favourite fairy-tales. Cindy, Ruby and Pru soon discover the confusion that awaits them: scrambled stories; happy endings misplaced and their own identities, truly unrecognizable. They are… The StorytEllas...but will they have what it takes to find their way home?
From the comfort of your own front room, join us on our journey, meeting wonderful characters along the way from our narrator, the happy magic mindful Pea to the marathon-running Gingerbread Person. Sing- along, dance along and learn to become a StorytElla!
