There was once a Princess whose Father was King over a great country full of mountains and valleys. His palace was built upon a mountain and was very grand and beautiful.
Princess Irene had eyes like two bits of night-sky, each with a star dissolved in the blue. However, I doubt if she ever saw the real sky with the stars in it for a reason I better mention at once. These mountains were full of hollow places underneath; huge caverns, and winding ways, some with water running through them, and some shining with all the colors of the rainbow when a light was taken in. There were mines there, great deep pits, with long galleries and passages running off from them, which had been dug to get at the ore of which the mountains were full.
Now in these caverns lived Goblins, cunning and mischievous. They were not cruel for cruelty’s sake and yet derived great delight in pestering the Sun-People who lived in the open-air-story above them…
The Theatre Adventure Wednesday Troupe brings to life this classic fairy tale, written in 1872 by George MacDonald. An ever present Great-Great-Grandmother, a doting nurse maid, a devoted King-Papa, a brave and curious miner boy, and more join with the courageous Princess Irene in a tale told with shadow work, acting, dancing, singing, and projections.
