Cheery, well costumed kids who gave their all to perform this well -scripted, well-introduced blockbuster. One could see the Fosse influence in the beautiful entry of the two sides, the band-dancers, the juggling, and the aerial foray.

A young prince goes on a fantastical quest to find the meaning of life in this experimental, ‘70s-style rock-circus filled with sensual and inventive story-telling. Love, war and politics – it’s all here in this hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale which captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic pop-influenced score by composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Wicked and Godspell) bursts with one show-stopping number after another. Enjoy soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers infused with acrobatics, Fosse jazz and aerial dance!
