PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

A hilarious adaptation of the classic Grimm's Tale, Twelve Dancing Princesses. The daughters of a king are locked away at night and every morning their newly-made, yet worn out slippers are piled at the door. Can anyone find out where the princesses go at night? This is a very funny and new version of this wonderful children's story.

New kind of children's show!

If you are like me, I take my kids to see children's shows at a variety of theaters throughout Atlanta. I have taken them to see other shows at Kudzu Playhouse and they have always enjoyed it. However, I usually find myself reading the program or just watching my kids enjoy the show. I decided to take my kids to see "Dancing Princesses" after seeing another wonderful show at this theater, "Dial 'M' for Murder". The show was packed and when the music came on (a David Bowie song), the whole audience started dancing. In fact, the whole show was scored with great classic rock tunes from Queen to War. That is what peaked my interest first. But once the show got underway, it was very apparent that this was an extremely talented and funny cast. The king (played by Jimi Kocina) stole the show, but everybody was just as good. I was then surprised to find out that the show was directed by the very same actor I saw the night before in "Dial 'M' for Murder". What can this young man NOT do? The script was funny and Mr. Meinhardt's vision for this production was extremely creative and allowed every person there to enjoy a "children's show". I think the parents and teenagers there were laughing and dancing harder than a lot of the kids there. I am definitely recommending this to anyone and I mean ANYONE who wants to see a wonderfully creative new show. Another thumbs up for Kudzu Playhouse! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
