'The Princess and the Pea' Retold with Music and Mirth at MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre Oct. 1

9/9/16

Song, dance and fun are all part of "The Princess and the Pea" love story.

West Windsor, N.J. – Love will always find a way. It’s never been more true than in “The Princess and The Pea,” to be presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre at Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Kelsey Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor Campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

This beloved Hans Christian Andersen tale comes to life in a fun and funny musical adaptation. It stars the Princess and her darling Prince Noodle, who is working to foil Queen Demean's evil scheme to marry him off to another princess he simply doesn’t love.  And while our heroine is not an actual princess, she nonetheless manages to pass an improbable - and impossible - test put forth by the Queen. Young theater goers will cheer her on as she outdoes her adversary on the way to true love.
