This production uses beautifully costumed hand puppets and live vocal characterizations to poke a little Southern-fried fun at the classic Hans Christian Andersen story of a kingdom in search of a "real" princess.

Twenty mattresses later, everyone in the kingdom learns not to "judge a book by its cover" as the new Princess is welcomed into the family.

In the end, it's "happily ever after, y'all" in this witty, one-of-a-kind adaptation.
