The Commedia Princess and the Pea
The Clover School District Auditorium Performing Arts Series continues with The Commedia Princess and the Pea, Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 7:00pm. In this funny, fast paced show, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte puts a slapstick spin on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale with roots in the humorous, physical acting style of Italian Commedia dell’arte. The lonely prince wants to find someone to marry, but potential princesses must first get past his mother, the Queen, and her long list of tests. Will any of them be loyal enough to turn a cartwheel, sing “Happy Birthday” while hopping up and down on one leg, and feel a teeny, tiny pea under a stack of twenty mattresses? Tickets $5.00; Children 12 & Under free.
