This is a fun dramatization of the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Young King Rupert spies lovely Princess Grace from a neighboring kingdom and fall instantly in love. But in his attempt to woo her he soon finds out she is not as lovely in actions as she is in looks. She is snobbish, selfish, and self-centered waited on hand and foot by her three ladies-in-waiting. Even the Princess’ father, the Emperor, is helpless to change her behavior. King Rupert, however, has an idea. By switching places with a swineherd, he enacts a plan where she must kiss him to obtain a coveted magic teapot, then a magic musical rattle. The Princess learns humility, and King Rupert discovers one gentle lady-in-waiting who should really become his bride. Performance time about an hour.
