The SAAC Theatre Committee is hosting the community theatre production of the full-length musical on October 19-29. This fairy-tale musical is a fun rendition of “The Princess and The Pea.”
Many moons ago in a far-off place, Queen Aggravain decreed no couples could marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, found a bride. Princesses came from far and wide to win the hand of the prince, but none could pass the impossible tests given to them by the Queen. That is, until the “shy” swamp princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, showed up. Carried on a wave of wonderful, romantic, and melodic songs, and action that turns hilarious and raucous, this rollicking tale provides some side-splitting shenanigans.
