Additional Information: 
East Valley Children’s Theatre is an award winning theatre by children for children and their families.  Each year it holds a playwriting contest open to anyone interested in writing play for children to perform for children and their families.  Contest deadline is March 15 each year.  Our 2012 winner, Evan Guilford-Blake is from Georgia and has writing numerous plays for adults and children.


This new play, adapted from a French fairy tale by Mme. d’Aulnoy, is a marvelous tale of the young princess Fiordelisa who falls in love with Prince Charming but cannot marry him until her stepsister, Trouty, marries.  Trouty has eyes for the prince too and when he refuses to marry her, she has him turned into a Bluebird and locks Fiordelisa in a tower.  With the help of magic, determination and true love everyone gets their just rewards.  Great entertainment the entire family will enjoy.
