Second Annual Education for Everyone Program Features 'Fidgety Fairy Tales'

“Fidgety Fairy Tales,” a series of musical stories that contain positive messages and portrayals of children with mental health disorders, will be featured at the next “Education for Everyone Event” hosted by the College of Applied Professional Studies at the University of St. Thomas.

The musical performance is free and open to the public and runs from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in Woulfe Alumni Hall in the Anderson Student Center on the university’s St. Paul campus.

The evening includes a 5:30 p.m. panel discussion on the early warning signs of mental illness, and a 6:30 p.m. reception with refreshments.

“Fidgety Fair Tales” will feature stories about Goldilocks (obsessive compulsive disorder); Boyd, Who Cried Wolf (Tourette syndrome); and CinderEdward (bipolar disorder).
