StoryBook Theatre Presents, The Paperbag Princess, the Musical.
Everyday from Apr 9, 2021 - Apr 25, 2021 at 12:00 am - 12:00 am
At a time when gender stigma and stereotypes have become the forefront of conversations, StoryBook are so excited to bring this story to life again! First published in 1980, written by famed Canadian author Robert Munsch, it is still one of the most popular children’s stories! Elizabeth and Ronald were the perfect couple. Elizabeth, a beautiful Princess. Ronald, a handsome Prince. End of story... until the Dragon soars in to heat things up. The Dragon wreaks havoc on their kingdom, leaving Elizabeth a smouldering mess, and Prince-less, as the Dragon took Ronald as a snack for later. Some might crumble and accept defeat, but not Elizabeth. She dusts off her charbroiled tiara and heads off on an epic journey to defeat the Dragon, and rescue her beloved Ronald. With help from friends along the way, clever wit, and a dose of quick thinking, this brave heroine saves the day, and Ronald. Although, with his attitude, she might just end up leaving him in the dungeon where he belongs! Recommended for ages 6+. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the website. Tickets are $32 per streaming code.
