A Fairy Tale with a Twist

Announcement from Oak Ridge High School

All performances will be at 7:00 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from November 5th through November 21st, 2009. Musical direction by Natalie Miller with pianist Shaun Manley and a group of harmonious Oak Ridge student musicians, and choreography contributed by Erica Wilens.

If you thought you knew the story of "The Princess and The Pea," you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred the Woebegone actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Add this to a scheming, son-smothering Queen Aggravain, you will be carried away on a wave of wonderful songs, by hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic turn-of-events. This rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again!
