Crystal Dawn Munkers leads an exhilaratingly updated take on the battle of the sexes – complete with operatic warrior maidens, a cross-dressing trio of dandies, and a bit of magic.
The brilliant, assertive Princess Ida has sequestered herself and her court in the Castle Adamant, dedicating themselves to the study of the higher arts and absolutely, utterly forswearing the company of men. And the men – including her promised fiancé, Prince Hilarion – are not taking it well.
What follows is a hilarious adventure as The Prince and his friends try to win back their betrothed before war breaks out between the antiquated men of the kingdom and the warrior maidens of Castle Adamant. Surprises, twists, and turns abound as disguises are revealed, hearts are laid bare, and magic is unleashed at Castle Adamant!
“Princess Ida” will be performed in three acts, with two 10-minute intermissions. At this time, we estimate the performances to run approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including the intermissions.
Tickets: $40 ($36 senior, $20 youth/student)
