About the Show
Atlantic for Kids presents a show that offers a new twist on the classic fairy tale story: a young princess breaks free of the expectations put upon her in this family-friendly musical.
A mixed-up fairy tale musical loosely based on the true story of a princess who wanted to break free from her traditional role. The princess ran away from home and became a pirate. But not just any ordinary pirate--the most feared pirate on The Seven Seas!
"It examines not just gender roles, but also income inequality, the nature of justice and the role of good government. That it manages to sail all its subplots comfortably into port in about 75 minutes attests to the talents of its creators, cast and crew...Directed with comic flair, the show abounds in surprises...Perhaps the biggest surprise is the seriousness that underlies all the fun. This may be comedy for 5- to 10-year-olds, but it’s comedy with a conscience."
