Synopsis

"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.

"This play is wonderful for children of middle school age. Our parents loved the storybook quality of the play."
Review by Delynn LeJong, W. S. Permenter Middle School, Cedar Hill, TX
"It was a delightful short play for children that combined a number of well-known folk tales that were entertaining for adults to revisit. It's great for elementary-school students because it isn't prop- or costume-heavy."
