- "The script itself is funny, but hearing it spoken out loud is just hysterical! We had the best time in rehearsals, and I appreciate how much flexibility the script allowed us to have in interpretation. I could hear our audience laughing the whole time, which boosted our morale to really "ham it up.""

Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Consider casting a man for one or both stepsisters. It made that role all the more comedic. We also had our Jester interact with the audience as they came into the house, telling them not to let on if the prince or king came looking for him. That seemed to give him a great rapport with the audience. For costumes: the change into ball gowns for the step sisters is very fast, so we strongly suggest quick change rigging costumes finding another way to stretch your time."
