Michael Jackson's Kids -- The Future Is 'Grimm'

3/1/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's in their blood ... and now Prince & Paris Jackson want to show the world they belong in show business ... by trying out for their school play -- a mash-up of classic "Brothers Grimm" fairy tales.

Paris expressed interest in auditioning for the show recently on "Good Morning America"  -- and now TMZ has learned, Prince wants in on the action too ... because they BOTH officially tried out last week.

The show's called "The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon" ... and it crams 209 classic fairy tales -- like "Snow White" and "Cinderella" -- into a single jam-packed play.

So far, no word on who got what role -- if any -- but the odds are in their favor ... because the play has nearly 50 characters in it.

Good for Prince. I'm sure the children will do fine. To Katherine Jackson: Please wake up and get MJ's kids away from Howard Mann and Melissa Johnson. Do you want the kids taken away from you? Of course not. Well wisen up and get rid of the vampires around Michael's kids.

They have no reason NOT to keep the name. They are JACKSONS! Being in a school play is a loooooonnng way off from being like Montana. Maybe Paris will be our next Meryl Streep -- an honorable actress; and Prince will be our next Ron Howard who makes clean wholesome family films. I hope so, so don't YOU be so negative! Michael brought them up right and so will Katherine. Thank you.

How great that the kids are adjusting so well after being isolated their whole lives.. if MJ were alive they'd still be living in seclusion, good for grandma getting them out to have kid experiences.

Good for them!!! I think Grandma Jackson is doing a wonderful job!!! The kids look happy, healthy and ready for the world. It's good they won't be getting large amount of money right away, they need to know what it's like to be normal as long as possible.

How exiting to know the kiddies are trying out for a school play. I'm sure The Academy is rushing to order an Oscar for them & all the child actors in Hollywood have been given their walking papers now that these mega stars are on the market.

Issue them their SAG cards & sign them up for record deals. Surely they must be talented beyond all belief if their last name is Jackson.

It's beyond sad that this family's priority is shoving these kids into the fishbowl of shallow celebrity rather than concentrating on letting them enjoy what's left of their childhoods & encouraging them to get a good education. Some things will never change.
