The story takes place in a far away kingdom. Due to an unhappy curse, King Sextimus is unable to speak. Meanwhile, his terror-of-a-wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom. Most importantly, in an attempt to keep Prince Dauntless single, she has decreed that only the princess that can pass her test may marry her son. Further, no one else in the kingdom may marry until Prince Dauntless does. Lady Larken and Sir Harry are extremely disturbed by this fact since Lady Larken is now pregnant with Sir Harry's baby. Fun ensues as pressure builds for the kingdom to find a princess who is worthy of the Queen's test. Carol Burnett made the show famous on Broadway.


Rehearsals are underway with the actors learning their parts and choreography.
