Princess K.I.M. The Musical was named winner of the New Play Festival at the Caryl Crane Children's Theater in Huron, Ohio!  Thank you to Brian Marshall, the Artistic Director and Pierre Brault, the Directer of our play...and of course the cast! These kids did an amazing job at the stage reading, considering that they only had 4 weeks to prepare! I was especially impressed by the actors that played Kim, Grandma and Dad. I could not be more proud. (Of course, I cried as I saw my play being performed for the first time EVER!) My team and I will return for a full production in the to be determined. I'll post pictures as soon as I am home....still at the airport...I'm making my way home and FLYING HIGH! Thanks to ALL who have supported our play!

I spent the week in Michigan with thousands of students who now are big FANS of Princess Kim and they can't wait for Princess K.I.M. the Musical to come to a theater near them! I was able to treat them to a few songs from the play as I shared my books and drew pictures of Princess Kim. After a week of school visits I'm off to Ohio for the Caryl Crane Children's Theater New Play Festival in Huron at Bowling Green University Firelands campus! ( I actually have some supportive families I met in Michigan who are attending! It's free to the public!) I can't wait to see my play performed on Sunday April 29 at 2pm! I am hopeful and I'll be posting the results as soon as I know. BUT whatever happens...I know we have something wonderful to offer the children's theater community! Fingers crossed!!

THANK YOU Play Supporters!

Because of the generosity of our supporters we have reached our Kickstarter goal! This money will go directly to expenses related to scoring the music and paying for studio time and musicians to make a performance CD, as well as other production expenses.  

As you may know, the New Play Festival in Ohio is in a few weeks. Princess K.I.M. is one of 5 plays in the finals. Whatever happens- we are extremely honored that our play will be performed in a stage reading with music! A win will mean a full production...but whatever happens in Ohio, know that we are working hard to enable this play to be seen by families all over the country. Stay tuned. We look forward to seeing you at a production soon.

Much Thanks- Maryann and the Princess K.I.M. Team
