Magic in the air with fairies, trolls and Emma Marie
The Fremantle Festival always attracts some amazing performers and performances. One of these is Emma Maroe Davis' Once Upon a Time.

Once Upon A Time chronicles Davis's unusual childhood growing up surrounded by eleven brothers and sisters. The work also focuses on the overwhelming fascination Davis had with Disney cartoons and how she often allowed her imaginary life to invade her real life.

Davis: "I grew up with more people in my house than Snow White had dwarfs and that has always been a topic of conversation for people when I was growing up. This show is my chance to tell my story in a different way, on my own terms."

The show also features music stretching back to the golden years of Disney including songs from Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, alongside songs that shaped her life including Eye of the Tiger and November Rain.

Davis has just returned to her home Perth after a long season in Sydney and the Eastern States.
