The Princess and the Pea

By: Karen T. Riehl

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 6F, 4M, adjustable
Time: 30-50 minutes

Everyone has fun during this audience-participation version of a famous fairy tale. It may be performed by teens for children or performed for audiences of any ages. It’s a charming comic spoof with exaggerated characters. King Do-Good and Queen Always-Nice search the world over for a real princess for their son, Prince Very-Handsome. When they can’t find one they decide to hold a contest. After Princess High Hat (a snob) and Princess Clever Hands (a thief) fail their first tests, Witch Double Ugly, in disguise, appears to be the winner. But at the last moment Princess Wet-to-the-Bone enters, asks for shelter, then sleeps on a pile of mattresses to discover a pea at the bottom. She wins the Prince. The audience is given props to bring on stage to interact with the performers. Delightful fun for everyone.
