Comedy. By Carol Lynn Wright.
Cast: 6m., 10w., plus extras. Here is a play of sheer frou-frou, intentionally frivolous and deliciously original. Pegora, an apprentice witch, has a flaw in her nature—she cannot help doing good. When the head witch, Mother Martacloy, learns that Pegora has made a contribution to the Orphaned Children's Home, she orders the unfortunate misfit stripped of her broom. Pegora begs for one last chance, and Mother Martacloy grants it on condition that Pegora kidnap, one by one, the seven princesses of a neighboring kingdom. Through a series of highly amusing blunders, she actually succeeds in this despite the king's elaborate precautions. But she is finally outwitted by the court jester, and rescued from the clutches of Mother Martacloy. Two sets. Fairy tale costumes. Approximate running time: 45 minutes. Optional music score available.
