About the Show

“In most fairy tales, princesses are beautiful, dragons are terrifying, and stories are harmless. This isn’t most fairy tales.” When Princess Violet and her best friend Demetrius discover a forbidden book in a hidden room, they unknowingly release the evil Nybbas into their world. The two friends pair up with an ancient dragon to try and save their kingdom, but the wicked creature’s triumph or demise all depends on how the story is told. This enchanted tale by the Minneapolis-based, Newbery Wining author of The Girl Who Drank the Moon comes to life on our stage in an enthralling adventure about the power of stories to change the world.

  • In this play (and the book it’s adapted from), the idea of the “beautiful” princess is challenged. However, people’s ideas of what is considered beautiful vary from person to person. Has your idea of beauty been the same your whole life, or has it changed? If the latter, how did it change?
