"The Princess and the Pea" will open at the Daytona Playhouse at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 24.
Directed by Ormond Beach resident and Daytona Playhouse President Kathy Thompson, the play tells the story of Prince Pea — played by Nehemiah Hunt, of Ormond Beach — who aims to escape the clutches of his mom, Queen Green (Ariel Peterman, of Ormond Beach) to marry Raspberry Sherbert, played by Story Knight.
Meanwhile, the evil Mandarin Orange (Remilio Lopez) has kidnapped Cinderella (Taina Palacios, of Ormond Beach) to train his daughters Blueberry Crumble (Lilly Graham) and Gooseberry Tart (Carma Richmond), to win the annual contest to find a bride.
Then, Prince Pea makes a desperate wish for help, and Fairy Godmother Spicy Jalapeño (Ivy Lee, of Ormond Beach) appears.
In addition to June 24, the "Princess and the Pea" will be presented at the Daytona Playhouse, located at 100 Jessamine Blvd., at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 25; Saturday, July 1; and Sunday, July 2. Tickets cost $8 for those 18 and under and $14 for adults.
