Here is a synopsis. ‘Popland,’ a magical Kingdom where all the popcorn in the world is grown, is planning its annual Popcorn Festival. It is also the time for the Princess to take a husband. The Princess has fallen in love with Prince Razorblade (who is not very sharp). But the Prince has two others vying for the hand of the Princess: ’The Ogre,’ who is big and smells bad, and the local Witch’s Son, who is not very bright. Who is going to win the hand of the Princess? See the Maskrafters Production of The Princess and the Ogre to find out.
Children of all ages will love this romantic comedy. Tickets may be reserved by calling 502-863-8104 and will be available for purchase at the theatre box office 30 minutes prior to each performance.
