There’s a mystery afoot in King Alfred’s kingdom. Every night the King sends his twelve princesses, each more beautiful than the last, off to bed with brand new shoes in a secure chamber in the castle. However, every morning the King awakes to find the shoes worn as if the girls had been dancing all night. Since no one will confess to what has happened, the King promises his kingdom to any soldier who can discover his daughters’ secret within three days. Join one soldier who is determined to uncover the mystery of the shoes and win his shot at a kingdom and a princess. Recommended for ages 4 and up. Special Accessible Matinee Performance on May 31, 11 a.m. Special pre-performance music by Prelude Youth Orchestra on June 7 & 8 at the 3 p.m. shows.
