THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA performance this Saturday.

Audiences of all ages will get a fresh look at an age-old favorite this Saturday, January 23 at 3 p.m. and 7p.m. when the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) and more than 50 local children present THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA.

Envision a kingdom of snow where the residents are Winter Wind Workers, Blizzard Bringers, Icicle Sharpeners and Snow Smoothers, ruled by the Storm King and the Snow Queen. Add to that a Prince looking for a proper Princess to share the throne. Now imagine the Princess and her friend the Pea living in a kingdom of green rolling hills and running rivers with her subjects, The Flower Gardeners, River Runners, Green Shoot Growers and Tree Barkers. Her parents, King Size and Queen Size, do all they can to keep things running smoothly. Who knows, maybe the dancing Dust Bunnies can help?

Although the two kingdoms think they have nothing in common, (except maybe a pesky Jack Frost that freezes anything and everything), the peace-loving Leprechauns prove otherwise. Throw in some Phony Princesses and you have a real fiasco! This ain’t your grandma’s PRINCESS AND THE PEA. We think you will enjoy its twists and turns.

This wonderful opportunity for all local children could not be made possible without the help of some very special supporters who understand the importance of the arts in our children’s lives. This year’s MCT Winter Workshop program is supported in part by grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin. Additional sponsorship made possible by Pastimes Books & Antiques, Green Lake Kiwanis, Wallenfang's of Green Lake, CHN Medical Center of Green Lake, and the Green Lake Bank.

Last but not least, a special thank you to the Bay View Motel for offering weeklong accommodations for the two tour directors, Marianne Reininger who will be providing the lively and lighthearted piano music that accompanies all Missoula performances, and Thrasher volunteers who will be providing home-cooked meals every night of the week for the road-weary tour directors.

Tickets price for this special production are $12 adults and $8 children and can be purchased at Thrasher Office, Knowledge Emporium, & Green Lake Bank (Green Lake); Pick ‘n Save & Ripon Drug (Ripon); and Twister (Princeton), or call the office at 920-294-4279.
