Grandpa's a little out of practice when it comes to babysitting, but if he's ever going to get his bouncy grandkids to go to sleep, he's got to remember some bedtime stories fast. Or at least something pretty close to them. Meet the Witch who lives in a house made of broccoli, the magical fairies Lipitor and Miralax, and Jack who climbs a beanstalk - and needs a little help from the stage crew to get down. You may think you know your fairy tales, but not the way Grandpa tells them.
