A brand new original musical, “The Adventures of Princess Truheart” opens this Sunday, April 6 at the Delaware Children’s Theatre. Written by DCT Creative Director Donna Swajeski, with lyrics by music and lyrics by Gregg Opelka, Truheart stars Sarah Robertson as Tru, who is surrounded by a bubbly cast including 25 children and one flamingo.
Tru is a pink-haired, spunky girl who dreams of becoming the perfect princess. She enrolls in Princess school but can’t compete with the likes of Snow White and Cinderella. So she seeks out the Sorcerer Zabraca for a magical makeover along with her friends — a plus-sized fairy, a knight who hates fighting and a shy pony.
Join Tru, from the Land of Pink, weekends in April at 2 pm (except Easter). It’s a funny, warm-hearted musical with a great message for kids!
