Two dueling households lay claim to the throne; Prince Agis vows to kill Princess Leonide so his family can reign with intellect over the realm. Leonide hopelessly falls for Agis and seeks entry into their private retreat disguised as a man. While only some are fooled by her disguise, all fall in love with her winsome spirit, and a hilariously messy path to love ensues. Join us for a rollicking musical ride on a difficult path to love, filled with deception, disguise, and confused relationships.
