Haphazardly Ever After is a hilarious fairy tale farce narrated by Elle Emrey.  King Barnabus (Mason Hutchinson) and Queen Mildred (Sierra Land) want nothing more than to live happily ever after in their beautiful kingdom, but there’s a problem — four obnoxious, bratty, adult children who do not live up to their royal titles.  There’s the mean Princess Cinnamon (Mary Eckert), the not-so-bright Princess Peppermint (Sarina Nickison), the vain Prince Hairgel (William Roland) and the lazy Prince Slacker (Evan Zimmerman). The king and queen try everything to bring happiness and harmony to their family.  They hire a royal therapist (Sachi Singh), bring in royal teachers (Anna Hartraft and Paige Harris) and even attempt to marry off their children to royal suitors (Brodie Kauffman, Connor Nafziger, and Carly Shiffer), all to no avail.  The king and queen are ready for a happily-ever-after that doesn’t include adult children still living at home, so they consult the Magic Mirror (Sadie Yudof) and call upon the fairy godmother (Anna Hartraft) to help; however, after learning the outrageous cost of hiring the fairy godmother, let alone the permits required, the king and queen decide to create a do-it-yourself fairy tale with the help of supplies purchased at The Enchanted Depot, staffed by Moe (Sophia Weiss), Roe (Rhiannon Henry) and Poe (Sachi Singh).  Royal chaos!  Of course, nothing goes as planned, but with the intervention of three fairies (Ella Wanner, Allison Harner, and Avery Hehnly) and the help of royal servants (Sean Bell, Haley Jack, and Devin Zook) and a Page named Paige (Paige Harris) everyone is changed by their experiences, and through a series of haphazard events, the royal family just might live happily ever after, after all.   

This is an all-ages show that everyone will enjoy, filled with surprises and special effects.  Mark your calendars now and order your tickets!
