Tada Theater's musical fairy tale like no other with a rebellious princess, and a gaggle of kooky chambermaids and stable boys - and of course a handsome prince!

An entertaining journey, this show examines the issues of individualism and non-conformity. What would happen if a princess didn't want to behave like a princess? What if she wanted to be the hero, rather than be saved by one? What would happen to a princess who didn't care about etiquette and decorum and gowns and make-up? Will the inhabitants of this fairy tale accept a princess who’d rather climb trees than make royal decrees?

The New York Times

for a previous production "'Princess Phooey,' a world premiere musical, portrays the royalty of imaginary kingdoms as close kin to the queen bees of real eighth grade...What makes 'Princess Phooey' so inspired is the way the writer has adapted a time-honored story to the culture the show's actors (they are 9 to 17) inhabit...it's wonderfully witty in taking this genre out of the castle tower and down to earth."

Backstage

for a previous production "This smart and adorable show, about a stubborn princess who cares nothing for the trappings of her station, has charm and Broadway pizzazz in abundance. The overall polish is even more impressive because the cast is aged 9-17. Under Tada! artistic director Janine Nina Trevens' savvy direction, these kids really sell the material...At a packed Saturday matinee, those most discerning of pint-size critics watched with delight, making nary a peep - the ultimate accolade."

National Youth Theatre

for a previous production "Director Janine Nina Trevens has this new show working at all levels with a great cast, flow, and visuals. The costumes capture the personalities of the characters especially well. And Sarah Martin has created a beautiful and expertly functional set with a gorgeous view of a garden set against far off mountains and a sunset fit for a fairy tale. Even an amusing anti-fairy tale like this one." Full Review
