This beloved Hans Christian Andersen tale comes to life in a fun and funny musical adaptation. It stars the Princess and her darling Prince Noodle, who is working to foil Queen Demean’s evil scheme to marry him off to another princess he simply doesn’t love. And while our heroine is not an actual princess, she nonetheless manages to pass an improbable – and impossible – test put forth by the Queen. Young theatergoers will cheer her on as she outwits her adversary on the way to true love.
