Children • 1 hr. • Audio Program • © 1998

This musical play, written and recorded for children, is jaunty and joyful, with plenty of advice on negotiating life's tangled pathways tucked into the songs and story. The singer-actors interpret the songs and script with wit, enthusiasm, and energy. Some songs are so engagingly performed that listeners sing right along. Gerth (Aloysius) has a deep, melodious voice that lends strength to the narration. Callner (Fairy godmother) performs with a scatter-brained whackiness that is at once charming and amusing. Spahr (Princess) couples a fine singing voice with well-prepared dramatic interpretation that easily carries the part. The musical play's ability to inspire the creation of pictures in the mind adds a deeper level of enjoyment to the listening experience. R.M.
