Many moons ago in a far-off place, Queen Aggravain decreed no couples could marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, found a bride. Princesses came from far and wide to win the hand of the prince, but none could pass the impossible tests given to them by the Queen. That is, until the “shy” swamp princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, showed up. Would she be able to pass the Sensitivity Test, marry her prince and help Lady Larkin and Sir Harry to the altar? This musical, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, is a spin on the classic tale The Princess and the Pea and provides some side-splitting shenanigans. After all, a princess is a delicate thing.
