Fan Fiction Theatre is proud to present: The Magical Retelling of the Fountain of Fair Fortune
A travelling troupe from the Wizarding Academy of Dramatical Arts has come to CaperCon to perform the Fountain of Fair Fortune by Beedle the Bard. Ever since the failed performance at Hogwarts, the play has been cursed but these Wizards and Witches are determined this will be a success. However, from trying to perform magic in front of muggles without breaking the statute of secrecy, a duel breaking out on stage, a screaming howler, and a lot of over acting, things do not go smoothly.
