On Saturday, August 23rd, DaPoPo's Happy Birthday, Princess Plum! returns to Alderney Landing as part of the Kiwanis Festival, featuring Ivy Abbott-Charles, James Thornton, and Garry Williams.
Finnegan Figg (Andrew Kasprzak) informs Princess Plum (Sher Clain) that the kingdom is in a state of Cherry Alert, original 2009 cast.
Twice postponed due to COVID and construction, the delightful 40-minute show tells the story of the privileged Princess Plum, whose birthday party is interrupted when a mysterious knight, Finnegan Figg, declares a state of emergency and tries to take control of the army. They enlist the quirky castle librarian's help, but soon Mother Goose and the Princess find themselves in grave danger and join forces to prevent a coup.
Mother Goose (Garry Williams) waves goodbye to Princess Plum (Sher Clain) and Finnegan Figg (Andrew Kasprzak) as Plum's delighted subjects look on.
