THE LIGHT PRINCESS
adapted from the fairy tale by George MacDonald
music and lyrics by Mike Pettry
book by Lila Rose Kaplan
May 20 - June 5, 2016

Theatre for Young Audiences, Julianne Argyros Stage

She can fly! That’s the good part. The bad part is she can’t land. The Princess has no gravity—and no gravitas. Free from sadness and fear, she also doesn’t know how to love, thanks to a witch’s curse (there’s always a curse!). And if the King and Queen can’t give her gravity before she’s sixteen, she’ll never come to earth. Maybe the Prince who wants to be a rock star will find an answer—his lyrics are lousy, but his heart’s in the right place. TheatreMania calls this new musical narrated by two wonderfully silly Wise Men “astonishingly delightful.” You will, too!
