By Sandra Fenichel Asher. Based on Norwegian folktales.
Cast: 2m., 4w. Expandable to 33 roles, plus extras. "Happily ever after" takes on new meaning as Katrina goes in search of her Prince, held captive by an evil Troll Princess in a dreary castle east of the sun and west of the moon. Katrina's journey brings her to the homes of three wise women who share hilarious stories—complete with marriage-minded mares and a nose three ells long—of how they have found contentment by "doing what pleases others," "doing what pleases me," or "doing nothing at all." With their guidance and a boost from the Four Winds, Katrina defeats the Troll Princess and rescues the Prince. The adventure concludes with a surprising promise guaranteed to please audiences of all ages. Minimal set. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
