“This musical has gone through such a transformation since the last time it was performed for the public, the audience will be delightfully surprised,” says Blue Apple Players executive director Paul Lenzi. “We wanted to teach the audience an important lesson, while having fun at the same time.

Blue Apple’s fanciful version of this popular tale takes place on a distant planet in an uncharted universe. While traveling the universe Princess Eartha finds herself in the middle of a star storm. She seeks shelter with the King and Queen of the Planet Po. Their son, Prince Polaris, is immediately smitten with Eartha, but the Queen is not.
