A.R.T. Institute from Cambridge, Massachusetts
Can a girl who can't fall at all, fall in love? Two witty wisemen sing a story of a young princess cursed by a wicked witch to float through life indefinitely. Twirling above the stage, through the kingdom and into a magical forest, she must find a way to come back to earth by her sixteenth birthday or be doomed to defy gravity forever! Directed by Allegra Libonati, THE LIGHT PRINCESS from the acclaimed American Repertory Theater (Artistic Director, Diane Paulus) showcases the brightest talents of Harvard's graduate acting program. Funny, romantic and cleverly choreographed to delightfully upbeat original songs, this whimsical new musical will have you giggling your way to cloud nine.
"A.R.T. is dedicated to the creation of innovative children's programming. I had a wonderful time with my daughters at The Light Princess, and I can't wait to bring them back to see the show this winter."
Diane Paulus, Artistic Director
