Blue Apple Players, a nonprofit theater company, is proud to present “The Princess and the Pea,” a unique and original musical that will be performed at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 22, 2008 at The Brown Theatre.

“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. We’ve really spiced things up by taking the story to outer space.”

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. She suspects that she is not really a Princess, and devises a plan to prove that Eartha is a fraud. True to the original story, her plan fails and the universe regales in a Royal Wedding for Prince Polaris and Princess Eartha.

 “The Princess and the Pea” was written by Blue Apple co-founder and artistic director Geraldine Ann Snyder. Geraldine has written the book, music and lyrics for over 36 Blue Apple Players’ musicals. Her musicals have been published by both Samuel French and The Dramatic Publishing Company and are available for worldwide productions. She was a recipient of the Presentation Academy Tower Awards for Women Leaders in Arts and Communication and the prestigious Star Award from the Pleiades Theatre Company. In addition, Dramatic Publishing nominated her musical version of “Johnny Appleseed” for the 2004 Award for Distinguished Play, presented each year by the American Alliance for Theatre and Education.
