Karen Craft, Fid's co-author and producer, and Meredith Carroll, co-author and director, discussed the original work Wednesday on News 8 at Noon.
The authors described the play as an epic fairy tale that creates a whole new world, with a prince, servent, fairies, witch, dwarves and knights. It weaves together action, romance, comedy and adventure. It's an ambitious undertaking from the size of the cast to the staging of the production. Both Craft and Carroll want it to appeal to everyone, but especially older children and adults.
