THE WANDERING BARD’S TALE – CHILDREN’S FAIRYTALE PLAY IN ONE ACT

When the Princess Dandelion is kidnapped by the evil sorcerer Jeff and his two sidekicks Cotton and Candy, King Monty (who lives in a hall, not a castle because it sounds better) sends his servant Max to rescue her. Max is aided by a wandering bard, named Pip, who helps Max rescue the headstrong Princess (who gets kidnapped once a month, usually) using a magical necklace and the power of a sneeze to defeat him in this children’s fairytale play.

 This play has been successfully staged and performed for a number of elementary schools in America and it ran for a year. It is a fantasy about the power of friendship and was used to get children interested in the arts.
