The prince has the shoe. He's ready to wed. But who's the woman behind the foot? Two investigative reporters—Deb Jabber from Action News Day Now and Sonny Glamour from Glitter Kingdom Today—compete for the scoop of the century, interviewing everybody from a fairy godmother in desperate need of a day-planner to mice in the witness protection program. Look for cameos from Pinocchio, Jack and his cow and other celebrities in this no-holds-barred exposé of the timeless love story and what it means to find—and TELL—the truth.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "The shoe boxes and stools were a lot for the actors to carry and worry about. I made T shirts with the TV program's logo and had crew members come on and off as TV crew and that helped."
- Tip by Shannon Ordakowski, Northwestern High School, Albion, Pa.
- "We used two music clips as "news intros" for our two reporters. Deb Jabber's was more serious, while Sonny Glamour's was more like Inside Edition or EXTRA!Ñreally upbeat."
- Tip by Peggy Millay, West Nebraska Arts Center, Scottsbluff, Neb.
