On her journey to recall her past, the Princess stumbles upon many fairy tale characters along the way including Rumpelstiltskin (Helen Connor), Cinderella ( Zoey Tadlock) and the Miller’s Daughter (Sophia McGinty). Of course, there is a Prince (Griffin Spring) who is seeking a princess that matches her description.
