Princess Phooey, an original musical, is not your typical fairy tale, and Phooey is not your typical princess. She doesn’t want to curtsy, smile, or be rescued by a Prince (although he tries), because she can rescue herself, if need be, and she would rather run around with the chambermaids and the stable boys. Her older sister Elessia, along with the Good Fairies, try to make Phooey into what they consider a proper princess, while Morbidia has other plans for them all. Princess Phooey book and lyrics are by Lisa Diana Shapiro with music by Eric Rockwell.  

Performances are one-hour long, affordable, fun-filled musicals that are perfect for family audiences of ages 3 and above. They are performed by talented young people who are members of RYET (Resident Youth Ensemble of TADA!). The young actors represent New York City in all its diversity. They come from different neighborhoods and boroughs, different economic, racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, have different abilities and are members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
