Description:

Not all gifts are what you expect...

Ella of Frell is given the ”gift” of obedience by Lucinda, her misguided Fairy Godmother, and is forced to do anything people command her. On her adventure to rid herself of the curse, she must outwit ogres, sidestep giants, befriend a prince, survive her step-family, and ultimately find the power to be her true self.  This musical for the whole family features hilarious characters, delightful music and a story full of surprises.
