The Company at IHS will perform Colleen Neuman's "The Princess Plays" at the Ipswich Performing Arts Center, 134 High St, Ipswich on Friday, May 6, Saturday, May 7 and Sunday May 8. Friday and Saturday performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Matinee performances are available Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
Each 2:30 p.m. matinee will be preceded by a tea party from 1 to 2:15 in the IHS cafeteria; tea party participants are encouraged to come in fairy tale-themed costumes.
The three one-act plays: "The Princess and the Princess," "The Lost Half-Hour" and "Twice Upon a Time" spoof traditional fairy tales and mirror several story lines from Disney movies. The production is led by company director Debra Dion Faust and student assistant director Rachel Benjamin, a senior. Juniors Rachel Corning and Sam Perakis are co-stage managers.
Tickets for "The Princess Plays" are available at www.ticketstage.com/CIHS or at the door for $10 general admission and $5 for students, seniors and preschoolers. Reservations may be made separately for the teas prior to the Saturday and Sunday matinees for $5 per person.
