Alison McGarry is a theatre teacher, playwright, and a children's author. Her work has been produced at the Colony, the Stella Adler Theatre, and the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre. One of her greatest loves is coaching her students at the Children's Institute, an organization that uses drama as an instrument for catharsis and self-esteem building for emotionally abused children from underprivileged backgrounds. In 2011 she launched her first children's book, Horace the Eloquent Elephant about a pompous pachyderm who talks incessantly and must learn to listen to others. Alison promotes her children's books by performing comical puppet shows at local schools, retail stores and other venues. Graduating from the University of Notre Dame, Alison received her B.A in English, after which she completed her theatrical training at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Rapunzel: Beginnings and Beyond is her first musical, but certainly not her last.

        Rapunzel: Beginnings & Beyond

Rapunzel: Beginnings & Beyond

In this adaptation of the age-old story, Rapunzel is more than just a damsel in distress who's long overdue for a haircut; she's a daring and precocious little lass who is determined to solve her own problems. A garden of magical singing fruits and vegetables, a wisecracking rat, a good-hearted bluebird, a sage cricket, a vast variety of bugs, and a fidgety flying squirrel (who can't fly) all help her along the way. Young thespians and adults alike will fall in love with the wacky, entertaining characters in this imaginative new fairytale musical.
