Stage Rights Musical of the Week: Gotta Dance!

By   Posted 8.18.2021   Announcements, Fairy Tale, adaptation, Family Musical, musical

A clumsy prince, a sleepy princess, an evil spell, and a kingdom filling with ducks. "You're probably wondering what is going on here," sings Lord Chamberlain at the top of this fractured fairytale. He tells of a spell cast upon the princess who awakens each morning so exhausted that she sleeps the day away. The king and queen have offered a sizeable reward to anyone who can break the spell; however, those who fail are transformed into ducks. Along comes a prince and his trusted sidekick, who set off on the adventure of their lives to save the princess. Based roughly on "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," Gotta Dance! is a whirling, twirling delight for the whole family.
