Know-to-Go Theatre for Young Audiences Tour!

The Inventive Princess of Floralee

inventive-princess-promo

This original, two-person, interactive, 30-minute fairy tale will have your students “thinking like scientists” as they follow the Princess of Floralee on the adventure of a lifetime, searching for the kidnapped king kept in the clutches of a viciously vile and wrathfully wicked witch.
Along the way, your students will help the princess solve a variety of math, engineering, science, and even dance challenges as she uses her brains, wit, and sound judgment to find her father in the land Scalenfell.
Your students will laugh and cheer as they meet characters like a figure-skating dragon, a Platypus saving Pirate, a gate with a flair for dancing, and a witch, that they may recognize! This unique educational opportunity unites science and art by giving your students the chance to laugh, dance, and think critically about topics rooted in STEM.
Created for grades K-5
