SHOW SYNOPSIS

Tons of magical fun awaits in this original, one-of-a-kind fractured fairy tale farce!  A kind king and queen have trouble in their royal family — four obnoxious, bratty, adult children who do not live up to their royal titles.  There’s the mean Princess Cinnamon, the not-so-bright Princess Peppermint, the vain Prince Hairgel and Prince Slacker, who thinks being a prince is just way, way too hard.  The king and queen try everything to bring happiness and harmony to their family.  They hire a royal therapist, bring in royal teachers and even attempt to marry off their children, all to no avail.  The king and queen are ready for a happily-ever-after that doesn’t include adult children still living at home, so they call upon the fairy godmother to help.  However, after learning the outrageous cost of hiring the fairy godmother (let alone the permits required), the king and queen decide to create a do-it-yourself fairy tale with the help of supplies purchased at The Enchanted Depot.  Royal chaos!  Of course, nothing goes as planned, but everyone is changed by their experiences.  And through a serious of haphazard events, the royal family just might live happily ever after, after all.
