The Fuse Project, created by Kate Pazakis and Bradley Bredeweg, has breathed new life into the project with the bawdy humor and infectious enthusiasm we've come to expect from Rockwell.

The whole production will lift your soul, drift you into the Christmas spirit, and remind you once again why "Edward Scissorhands" has become the classic film it has. With its relatable and timely themes, the world needs "Scissorhands" to remind us we all have a place in this world.

The most surprising part of Scissorhands is how genuinely moving it is at times.Scissorhands is played by a woman, and many references are made to their ambiguous gender identity, something that was never explored in the film. After initially assigning the name Edward, Peg later realizes they/them pronouns are more appropriate for her new adopted child. It's a seemingly small detail, but it goes a long way in adding a new modern layer to the story, and to the underlying theme of what is “required” to be accepted in society.

Life may have dealt Scissorhands a bad hand (or pair of them), but Scissorhands at Rockwell goes a long way towards making up for that raw deal. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll stand up and cheer this most unique and unexpected of holiday heroes.

...Scissorhands is a love letter to the moving story of an outsider trying to find acceptance in a disapproving world. Mixing the film's narrative with songs ranging from traditional Christmas carols to “Shallow” from 2018's A Star is Born, Scissorhands is pure perfection.
