"Once upon a time, a king had twelve beautiful daughters who danced in secret every night..." The King is mystified by their secret, and issues a challenge to the men of his kingdom -- find out what his daughters are up to! Of course, one good-hearted young man succeeds -- but at what cost? This story, recognizable to any defiant teenager or exasperated parent, is about the walls we build between each other, and how the power of love and communication can tear them down. This play provides an excellent opportunity for ensemble acting and dances.

From the author of our celebrated play Drive-In

"A 'pop' psychology version of the fairy tale that emphasizes family, communication and relationships along with the fairy tale traditions.... Helleson's adaptation throws in a lot more characterization than the Brothers Grimm version, and more than a little psychoanalysis." - Irvine World News

"Fantasy and reality intertwine beautifully and musically...." - Orange Coast Daily Pilot

This adaptation of The Twelve Dancing Princesses was first presented by the Young Conservatory Players of South Coast Repertory on December 14th, 1990.

I ordered this title for perusal, but I was worried it would be too juvenile for my middle schoolers. It is perfect, with a nice humor about it, and a sweet message that is present without being cloying. My students loved it, and are encouraging me to choose this as our fall play!
