Children of all ages will love this gravity-defying musical!
A whimsical tale of a Princess who is cursed to have no gravity. The King and Queen must find the Princess' gravity before her 16th birthday, else the kingdom will fall into the hands of the Witch that cursed her. Based on the short story by George MacDonald, The Light Princess is written for younger audiences, but is a joy for adults as well.
