East Valley Children's Theatre kicks off its 21st season with the world premiere of King Thrushbeard by local award-winning playwright C. Lynn Johnson, directed by Karen Rolston. The cast of 26 youth age 8-18 hail from all around the Valley. 

Cora is a beautiful princess. Reginald is a bachelor king. Their pairing should be a match made in a fairytale, but in this story nobody is what they seem. Through the meddling antics of an impish minstrel, a band of thieves, and three blind mice, Cora and Reginald just might find happily ever after. A must see for children of all ages.
