The Unprincess

When the immature and power hungry Princess Cecily drops a dirty shoe into Maggie's water bucket, our heroine sees the stark contrast between the pampered lives of the royals and the powerless head and wears the princess's dirty shoe, proclaiming herself "The UnPrincess of Forlorn." While Maggie's mockery of the royals was meant to be in jest, the villagers start to think that maybe she should be their queen for real.

This show is loaded with delightful humor and colorful characters such as Sir Sneedly, Knight of the Pompous Sword, Queen Aubrey, and Professor Pythagoras. This charming story is full of twists and turns and has a wonderful ending, complete with a moral!
