StageCoach Theatre Company, a new theatre company serving Loudoun County and surrounding areas, is proud to present its fourth production “The Three Quests of Princess Camilla”. This original show for children was written and directed by James Campanella (of Hamilton) and produced by Jerri Wiseman (of Herndon). The show includes original music written by Joe Campanella (of Leesburg) with arrangement by Abby Gray (of Ashburn).
In the Land of Pryndarynn, Princess Camilla (played by Mikayla Hammrich of Ashburn) is quite unpleasant. She’s spoiled, mean to her subjects, and at times, can be a royal pain. But lately she has a new problem. She’s become ill and those around her are beginning to think she may die. On the advice from her Vizier (played by Jeannie DeLisi of Ashburn), Camilla leaves the castle to undertake three quests to regain her health. Too bad the Vizier didn’t mention that the quests will be nothing like she expects.
These outdoor theatre performances are scheduled for May 19 and 20 at Oatlands, 20850 Oatlands Plantation Lane, Leesburg, VA 20175. The grounds will be open at noon with the show beginning at 1:00 p.m. Carnival food concessions will be available for purchase. Those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets for their seating pleasure. Following the show, a special sword fighting skit will continue to entertain the audience.
The Sunday performance on May 20 will have a sign interpreter for the deaf, as arranged by HIS Sign LLC.
Tickets for the show can be purchased in advance at www.stagecoachtc.com for $11 Adults and $7 for Children ages 2-11. Tickets at the door will be $12 for Adults and $8 for Children 2-11.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Oatlands Plantation. Discounted tickets for a tour of the Oatlands mansion will be offered for $5 with purchase of a show ticket.
