This play was so well-received last year that we just had to bring it back!
To save her father and mother, a young daughter makes a promise to live with a beastly bear, whose palace is secretly filled with nasty, bumbling trolls.
In the dark of night, our heroine falls in love with a sweet shy Prince. She makes a promise never to see his
face in the light and to keep their love in the dark. But when the tricky trolls convince her to sneak a peak, she
breaks her promise and the trolls whisk away the newly un-enchanted Prince.
So what’s a girl to do? Save him, of course! On her amazing journey to save her true love, she encounters
Hags and Horses and gets help from the Winds. Will she save her hero from the evil trolls? Can she mend her broken promise? Will they live happily ever after? Join us and find out!

Reflecting Life on the Stage with Truth and Theatricality While Exploring a Female Vision and Creating a Community of Artistic Freedom
Our goal is to create a community of artistic freedom: freedom from the pressure to be commercial, freedom from gender expectations and freedom from judgment. We believe this is the way to bring our audience aesthetic bliss. Supporting inspiration without expectations gets creative juices flowing. This pure creative energy then creates the purest entertainment.
