All stories that begin with "once upon a time" need a bit of magic to make them unfold properly. This traditional, beloved fairy tale comes to life with the help of an Enchantress who brings the magic of dreams, imagination, and romance. When a prosperous merchant loses his way in the forest, he discovers a castle that changes his life and the life of his beautiful daughter forever. Meet the cast after every performance.
