Stew-Stras High School to present 'Princess Who?'

The Stewardson-Strasburg High School Drama Club will be presenting the children’s play “Princess Who?” on Friday, March 7, at 7 p.m. and on Saturday, March 8, at 11 a.m.

Tickets are $4 for adults, $3 for students, and children 4 and under will be admitted for free. All tickets may be purchased at the door.

“Princess Who?” is a fun-filled, fairy-tale mystery adventure with many favorite fairy-tale characters involved. The story begins when a girl wakes up in Misty Forest with no memory of her past. The lost girl can’t remember where she’s from, how she got into the forest, or even her own name. As the girl attempts to find her way home, she meets several fairy-tale characters -- Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella and Rapunzel to name a few. Some characters are helpful and some characters are dangerous, yet all have information that helps the fair maiden recall her own story, eventually revealing her true identity as a princess.

Cast members include: Sarah Locke, Olivia Telgmann, Nicholas Burton, Mikiel Ewida, Marcail Clark, Hannah Beals, Noah Schneiderman, Brayden Stremming, Shyann Schultz, Sean Quninlan, Baylee Quast, Anna Yakey, Kaitlin Wheeler, Clara Kaufman, Mark Jones, Christian Vonderheide, Grace Schuler, Milah Chowning, Megan Cress, Madison Antrim, Kennedy Ferris, Tristan Mummel, Will Tabbert, Haley Williams, Kristina Beitz, Dakota Shadwell, Bryse Bugger, Kaitlyn Slifer, Brittany Ballinger, Ted Kessler, and Kasee Garrett. The play is under the direction of Sara Long with assistance from student directors Morgan Stremming and Jill Conder; costume designer Joyce Slifer; set designers Matt Jones and Jon Woods; hair and makeup by Shelby McCormick; and technical advisor Michael Mohr.
