About the Play

After Verónica and her mom have a huge argument about household responsibilities, she awakens into a magical world of fairytales. With the help of a shoemaker, she learns that a princess's life is not as fun as she thought it would be. Living in their shoes, she learns a valuable lesson: beyond the glamour lies a reality filled with hidden challenges. Verónica learns to appreciate the genuine, hardworking life her mom has built for her over the make-believe world of fairytale princesses. Workshops will focus on celebrating family through personal interviews with inspiring role models and students will create their own modern-day fairy tale.

Language note: this play will be performed in Spanish with English supertitles.
