Based on George MacDonald’s fairy tale, this delightful musical tells the story of a young princess cursed to live without gravity. She floats through life unburdened by cares or sorrow, constantly soaring through high winds and avoiding low trees. If her parents, the King and Queen, don’t help her come back to earth by her 16th birthday, the curse will be permanent.

Lila Rose Kaplan and Mike Pettry’s innovative and original adaptation of the classic story is brought to life with gravity defying ensemble choreography and delightful costumes. Featuring graduate acting students from the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training, this energetic and interactive show is sure to be a holiday treat for the whole family. The set design is by Julia Noulin-Merat, costume design by Arthur Oliver, lighting design by Porsche McGovern, and sound design by Aaron Mack.
