Under the direction of the Artistic Director, visual arts teacher, Adele Hughes, over 70 students, parents, and SCAD volunteers have collaborated on the creation of the scenery, props and costume design. The Princess and the Pea includes a cast and crew of over 60 Garrison students. This production of The Princess and the Pea could not have happened without tremendous parent support and involvement.
The Princess and the Pea is a comedic version of Hans Christian Anderson's short story. Prince Valiant, son of King Maximillian of Maxwell-by-the-Sea, has come of age and is sent on a quest in search of a bride by the wisest gypsy in the kingdom, Esmeralda. Accompanied by his loyal squire, Sir Donald Dunce, and armed with a scroll of proverbs from his grandmother, Old Queen Maude, Prince Valiant encounters a vast array of very interesting princesses. Prince Valiant wonders if he will ever find the one princess, and, if so, will she be able to pass Granny's secret test.
