Do you like classic fairy tales? How about adventure? What if there’s a little mystery too?
Well, “Princess Who?,” being staged by the West Hudson Arts and Theatre Company, promises to satisfy all of that and more.
The company describes the play as a smorgasbord of all the classic stories. Presented by Brian D. Taylor and directed by Nicole Floyd, the show will be staged on Nov 2, 3, 9, and 10 at the WHAT Theater.
“Primcess Who” follows a girl who wakes up in a forest and has no memory of who she is or where she’s from. During her trek through the forest, she crosses paths with some well known characters such as Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and even Hansel and Gretel. While some of these characters try to help her, others prove to be dangerous. However, they can all provide insight to who she is.
The show stars Maria Pereira as the unnamed Princess; Dante N. Correa as Hansel and the Rowdy Dwarf; Nathalie Reyna-Bellero as Gretel and the Good Fairy 3; Michael Bradow as Rumpelstiltskin, Big Bear, and Prince Reveille; Stephanie Santos as the Queen of the West, Mother Bear, and the Queen of the South; Samantha Santos as the Tiny Bear and the Herald; Chloe Woolis as Goldilocks and the Steward; Cassidy Szymanski as Rapunzel and the Flighty Dwarf; Agatha Correa as the Fairy Godmother and the Evil Fairy; Jade Fontenele Siqueira as Cinderella and the Guilty Dwarf; Amaya Kelley as the Hippie Dwarf and the Nurse; Christian Florio as the King of the South and the Whiny Dwarf, Sarah Barbosa as Snow White and the Good Fairy 1; and Allyson Quiroz as the Queen of the North and the Good Fairy 2.
