Bring this Magical Play – based on a classic fairy tale – to life! Expect a week of creative innovation as we figure out how to make a floating princess return to earth!
Once upon a time, a witch cursed an infant princess with no gravity. She never felt weight, whether physical or emotional; she could never walk on the ground, and she could never cry over anything. Instead, she floated and laughed. The witch (who also happened to be the princess’s aunt) looked forward to the girl’s sixteenth birthday: If the princess did not find her gravity by then, the curse would be permanent, and the kingdom would be under the control of the witch! Adapted by Emily C.A. Snyder, from the Scottish fairy tale by George MacDonald, The Light Princess is a whimsical adventure for the whole family.
What to expect theatrically during the week?
Campers will be learning a play during the week. They will be asked to work on lines and blocking when not at camp. Even if not a musical, they may also learn songs and dance moves. It is a busy week with a great deal of information our campers are learning. But it is fun and energetic. Just be ready for some tired campers who will need their rest at night! The director will cast roles based on a mini- audition process on the first day of camp, and everyone gets a role! Some kids will have more lines to learn than other, yet all the roles are important to make the show.
