The Light Princess
A.R.T. Season
A.R.T. Institute Season
December 7, 2014 - January 4, 2015

Staged to great acclaim last season, this adaptation of George MacDonald’s classic fairy tale follows a young princess cursed to live without gravity. Floating through life unburdened by cares or sorrow, the princess is always just out of reach of everyone around her. If her parents, the King and Queen, don’t help her get back to earth by her 16th birthday, the curse will become permanent. Featuring actors from the A.R.T. Institute Class of 2015, this playful production combines wit and humor, music and movement, to delight both children and their families.
