When the new princess is born, the court is excited that this is the child who will save them all from the evil force that threatens to vanquish the kingdom. the king asks his three favorite aunts to be godmothers to his daughter, Elise. A fourth aunt, Malicia, who has harassed the king's family for years, shows up uninvited at the christening, causing a scene which ends with deadly curses. To protect the child, the three kindly godmothers take Elise to live in a secluded forest cottage until after her 16th birthday when the curse will expire. It is then that the princess and her protectors leave the safety of the forest and proceed to the king's castle, but it's a day too early to avoid the curse! the crazed and powerful Malicia arrives at the castle, making demands and threats, knowing that the time is right for fulfillment of the curse. Prince Michael, who is in love with Elise, also arrives at the castle, where his newfound love has fallen victim to Malicia's curse and is sleeping in an isolated tower. In his search for Elise, Michael confronts Malicia, overcomes her curses, and finds his dear Elise. Runs about 2 hours. Music Score available On Hire only
