Synopsis of the play:
Princess Charli’s dreams are suddenly interrupted by a problem that has an entire community (kingdom) struggling to deal with her resulting behavior challenges. Charli’s family, friends and the entire community work together with a specialist named “Heather,” who diagnosis the problem and offers a special remedy in the form of a tiny pair of Magic Socks (the cure).
Princess Charli: African American, age 6-10. Although independent, head strong and determined to have her way, is sweet, happy, and kind. Lives in the Kingdom of Epoh in a pink castle with her mother, father, and grandmother who all spoil her.
Rosemary: Caucasian, Charli’s maternal grandmother, age 55-65. Lives in the pink castle with Charli, Paul and her daughter Melody, a good listener, but overindulges Charli by not making her mind, and keeps her out of trouble by covering up her bad behavior. She is also hiding a secret from her past.
Sondra: African American, Charli’s paternal grandmother, age 55-60. Assertive, an experienced teacher who is calm, loving, kind, firm, and a good disciplinarian. She does not live in the castle, but lives in Actionville, a town not far away. Although she has had difficulty in her past, she has learned how to help herself and others who are facing challenges.
Melody: Biracial, Charli’s mother, age 29-34. Indulges Charli and has problems disciplining Charli. Lives in the pink castle. She is hiding a secret about her past.
Paul: African American, Charli’s father, age 29-36. Lives in the castle, easy going, indulges Charli, and he, too, is hiding a secret from his past.
Heather: Multi-ethic, possibly Asian, African American, and/or Native American. 55-75 ageless. A wise healer, herbalist, has vast experience working with those in the kingdom who have been victimized by Antipática the Witch.
