The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

If you are one of the many who have attended our sold-out performances in the Carousel Theatre and have seen what great casts and crews we have in our summer productions, don’t sit on the sidelines this summer! Come be a part of something very special with this production!
Tennessee Valley Players is a not-for-profit community theatre group whose mission is to provide meaningful theatrical opportunities for performers and audiences. For almost 30 years TVP has entertained the Knoxville area. Currently, we focus on one main musical each summer.
Tennessee Valley Players rely on the generous donations from patrons to finance their productions. Each year in the spring, the Players host a Gala fundraiser which provides a significant portion of our year’s operational budget. Of course, we accept donations year round.Thank you for your generous support!
Please note our phone number has changed! It is now 865-203-2673 and is only operational during our summer musical performances.
