The Plain Princess, Book and lyrics by Jim Christian, Music by Tom Edward Clark, Oct.4-12, 2013
Adapted from the children’s book by Phyllis McGinley
Young Princess Esmerelda seems to have everything that a young princess should…except that she is “plain.” In order to overcome her dilemma, the King and Queen seek the help of anyone who can remedy their daughter’s situation. After all of the wizards and physicians refuse the challenge, a clever widow accepts the task and takes Esmerelda to live with her and her five charming daughters. The result is a special kind of magic that works a miracle.
