A three-act musical comedy, "The Apple Tree" will be presented 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday in the Hart High School Auditorium, 24825 North Newhall Ave., Newhall. "The Apple Tree" is directed by Gail Hart and Ryan Viramontes. Tickets are available at the door.

Each act of "The Apple Tree" features its own distinct storyline and characters; however, they are wound together by a common theme - the relationship between men and women. The first act is based on Mark Twain's "The Diary of Adam and Eve," a humorous look at the beginning of mankind. The second act is based on Frank R. Stockton's "The Lady or The Tiger?" - a story set in a semi-barbaric kingdom where the Princess is forced to make a decision deciding the fate of her forbidden lover.

Finally, the third act is based on Jules Feiffer's "Passionella," which is a comedic take on the classic Cinderella story - just remove the stepsisters, the pumpkin and the slipper - and Passionella is ready to grace the movie screen.

The original production of "The Apple Tree," written by the same authors as "Fiddler on the Roof," opened on Broadway in 1996 and received a Tony Award for "Best Actress in a Musical" as well as five other nominations. In 2006, a full-scale revival of the musical was produced off-Broadway, starring Kristen Chenoweth (of "Wicked") that ran for several months.
