HURRICANE — A multimedia production of “The Three Princes” opens May 20 at the Hurricane Art Center, with shows nightly through May 30.
The show stars Josh Ford as the headstrong Prince Eagan, Tyler Call as swashbuckling Prince Garrett and Alek Jordon as the shy and intelligent Prince Chance. Rebecca Peck and Marlena Cremeens portray Cinderella and Rapunzel; filmmaker and media enthusiast Liz Baxter plays the feisty Sleeping Beauty.
Handsome princes, beautiful damsels, fighting warriors, evil stepmothers, fairies, witches, sorcerers and fire-breathing dragons all play a part in the dazzling production. Also featured is film actress Cathy Ford as the abominable Stepmother, Britnee Hobson as the black fairy Wednesday and Takoma Dennett as the sassy Fairy Godmother.
As the story unfolds, a young lord is apprenticed to a magician because of the loss of his family’s wealth. As he grows, he becomes a faithful servant to his master and a great wizard himself. The young wizard falls in love with a princess, who is unaware of his love, and he becomes embittered when she marries the king.
In 20 years, the apprentice has become a dark sorcerer who endeavors to use his powers to ruin the lives of the three sons of the woman he once loved (now the queen) and to keep each of them from their one true love.
The princes fight to save their women, which takes a little help from a fairy godmother.
