The following is from the South Orange Performing Arts Center:
The beloved Hans Christian Anderson tale, The Princess and the Pea, comes to life on the South Orange Performing Arts Center stage on October 15 at 2 p.m. This fun, and funny, musical tells the story of a Princess who is introduced to the King and Queen’s court just in time to vie for the Prince. However, her arrival in a rainstorm leaves the Queen to doubt her worthiness as a match for her son. This story of acceptance and love and, of course, a ‘Pea’ will prove that staying true to who you are is the key to true happiness.
