“We are so excited to bring the Princesses back, and that they’ll be joined by some Princes this year. Philadelphia Theatre Company is helping create memories for children as they experience live theatre for the first time,” said Paige Price, the company’s Producing Artistic Director. “PTC has traditionally been the destination for work best enjoyed by teen and adult audiences, but it makes me happy to see these young audiences simply mesmerized. We know that the love of live theatre often begins with very young children who are taken to performances by a family member. By combining music, audience interaction and a family-friendly story in a relaxed environment, we hope to light that spark of interest that will last a lifetime.”
In A Dream Is A Wish: Holiday Princess Concert, Cinderella is planning a holiday celebration for all the beautiful people of the kingdom and all of her princess friends. At the party, the newest and youngest princess, Sofia, meets some of the princesses that she has always admired, like Rapunzel, Cinderella, Elsa, Moana, Ariel, Elena and more, along with Hans of the Southern Isles and that lovable outlaw Flynn Ryder.
In this heartwarming show, Sofia learns that each princess has obstacles to overcome and her path to discover, but no matter what, if Sofia’s true to herself, she will find her way. Audiences journey along with her as she learns what “being a princess is all about,” Moreover, they’ll sing along with almost two dozen favorites - A Dream Is a Wish, Let It Go, Love Is An Open Door, Almost There, At Last, I See The Light, Reflection, Part of Your World, Frosty the Snowman, It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and more.
Following the show, all the little princesses and princes in attendance will be invited to meet the cast in a special post-show meet-and-greet.
