Book, Music, & Lyrics by Marc Robin and Curt Dale Clark
A recipe for a very colorful musical: start with the Andrews Sisters-inspired trio Ruby, Marigold, and Periwinkle; mix in the evil Queen Magenta; add Sienna the talking owl; then blend the muddled monarch King Lapis with an allergy-prone Prince Hunter and a particularly peculiar Princess Amber. Top it all off with a fire breathing dragon and you have a musical retelling of the Brothers Grimm tale teeming with shattered stereotypes, broken rules and quests aplenty.
Suitable for all ages Running Time: 55 minutes
Cast of Principal Characters:
Sienna, a Talking Owl
Forget the Grimm Brothers, Charles Perrault or Walt Disney’s fairy tale versions of this story. Marc Robin writes for today’s kids in his updated musical that features all the original whimsy, but is spiced up with contemporary dialogue and positive themes.– Center Stage Chicago 2012
