Premiered September 2006
Perth, Australia 2009
CSA commissioned this new musical version of the classic fairy tale in 2006. Playwright Don Kukla, (The Fisherman and His Wife) has again penned a funny, enchanting story.
As a Prince comes of age, his doting parents tell him it is time to marry a Princess. No Princess can be found locally, so the Prince must go on a quest. Finding no suitable Princesses, the Prince sadly returns home.
Then on a dark and stormy night, there is a knock at the door and soaked stranger enters the castle and introduces herself as a Princess! The Queen does not believe her and puts her through a test to prove she is a true Princess and worthy of the Prince. Silliness and song carries the story to a happy ending for all.
