POLLY PRINCESS AND THE PENNILESS FRY COOK

Genre: Kids, Musical
Adam Baritot, music and direction. Dianna Tucker, book and lyrics.

Polly Princess and the Penniless Fry Cook is our first original story, a musical about the unlikely romance between the Princess of Queen's Island and a fry cook from Albaster (both in the great land of Amsteryork.) Polly Princess, royal heir to the throne, finds herself in a pickle when she learns that in order to retain her father's fortune, she must find a husband in the next three days. The catch is this: he may NOT be a prince. Polly's existence as a princess is shaken; she is forced to reexamine her priorities, and she learns that there's more to life than diamond tiaras. Her friendship with Peter Pauper blossoms, and she finds herself falling in love with him in spite of herself. As Polly sings in "Purple Rose," (her revelatory ballad:) "He's not the Prince Charming I dreamed of, but Princes and Charming don't mean love." In the end, after several surprises and twists (thanks to Peter's melancholy friend and Polly's slightly manic Fairy Godmother) Peter and Polly manage to have a happy ending.
