A king with 12 unmarried daughters and a mystery to solve! How do the 12 lovely princesses wear out their shoes night after night when they are securely locked in a room from which there is no escape? And where do the princes who come to woo them disappear to? The mystery is solved by Michael, an ambitious cowherd, with the help of Sterling, the Silver Fairy. To "kick-up-your-heels" dancing melodies, Michael discovers the princesses' secret and wins the hand of the youngest, Princess Linda.

- "This is a wonderful script for those looking for a large ensemble cast with some wonderful featured performers. Easy to learn. Easy to stage. "If He Would Dance with Me" is one of the best songs I have heard in a children's show. The audiences loved this show, and so did the cast."
