Girl Tales is podcast theatre for young audiences of all races, classes, abilities, shapes, and gender-identities. Award-winning women and trans-identifying playwrights from across the country adapt the fairy tales they read as children to embody what they wish they heard. The damsels are no longer in distress and the princesses are no longer in waiting. They go on adventures and become their own heroes! Our children are listening. Let’s turn off those screens and give them something empowering to listen to!
