Free Reading of “Princesses The Musical” on June 21

Written by Tony winner David Zippel (City of Angels, Disney’s Hercules), Oscar and Grammy nominee Matthew Wilder (Disney’s Mulan) and Emmy and Golden Globe winners Cheri & Bill Steinkellner (Cheers, Sister Act – The Musical), Princesses The Musical follows a group of jaded private-school girls forced by their teacher to put on a show. They’d rather die, until one girl’s movie-star dad, the former “Sexiest Man Alive,” shows up to direct the beleaguered production.
