With a classic fairy tale setting, loads of exciting and hilarious roles to play, a variety of entertaining musical numbers, and a plot full of mystery and adventure, this show has it all! It begins in the Misty Forest, where a girl is sleeping all alone. But when she wakes, nothing looks familiar to her. She can’t remember anything – not where she’s from, how she got here, or even her own name! She embarks on a journey to discover her identity and meets several fairy-tale characters along the way – Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella, and Rapunzel to name a few. Some are helpful, some are dangerous, and some are just plain weird, but all have information to help our young girl eventually realize her true identity as a princess. As with any good fairy tale, there’s also a prince! He’s desperate to find the princess, but he is always one step behind and inadvertently rescues and wins the hearts of all the wrong princesses! A rocking musical score adds even more fun to new takes on the stories everyone loves.

  1. please email me information on season .

  2. 4 tickets for Saturday evening. I did call but need confirmation

    • You will need to email your request to if you need confirmation. We only call back if we cannot accommodate your request. We are a community theatre and we all have jobs. The phone lines are never manned as the box office is only open during performances. If you left a voice mail and no one called you back, you have reservations.

  3. Check the spelling on “Princess Whatsername”.

  4. I don’t see on the website anywhere that tells what the shows are about. can you tell me what the “its a wonderful life: a live radio play” is about please? I may want to buy tickets to see this. Thank you.

    • Generally we post a play description under auditions when those auditions are being conducted. Or, when we begin taking reservations for a play, it is posted on the splash page. That did not happen for It’s a Wonderful Life because we thought everyone would be familiar with the movie.
