If you can recall all those cute princesses who had problems while they awaited discovery and rescue from some Prince of a man; then maybe you’ll enjoy the real deal as these princesses recall those days of yore.
Zac Phelps directed this cast of ten female players who work through 14 parody type numbers in a cabaret style setting. Cinderella (Leah Boresow), Snow White (Leah Keelan) and Sleeping Beauty (Bekah Medford) are the lead trio; albeit each of the actors has her minutes of stage fame as they relate their experiences, feelings, regrets and wishes.
Angela C. Rodriguez is Pocahontas and Kelsey South is Rapunzel, and their numbers, like the others, are an audience hit. The costumes are really good, and some of these princesses can actually tap dance in Act II. Rachel Shiffman, Jada Grier, Sarah Grace Valleroy, Tecia Chavez and Keeley Adkisson round out the cast, and Cristina Dinella is on the keyboard to stage right.
So forget about that girl with the long hair in a castle, the one swimming in the bay, or one who worked wonders by smooching a frog. The stories that were told to you when you were young may not be as the frustrated ladies relate their tales.
The theatre performs on the Lyric Studio on the Square, just off the Square on Powder Springs Street. Park on the streets adjacent if you can. All seats have good views and it is a small house, so you feel truly drawn in to the action. More info at MariettaTheatre.com
