"There are many variations of this tale, spanning across different eras and cultures worldwide. Directed by Laura Connors Hull and Ellen Selby, the Learning Theater’s version mixes the classic Greek tale of Persephone with modern values and customs (and humor!), and the result is a fantastic night of live theater....I really enjoyed Creative Cauldron’s production of The Dancing Princesses and I highly recommend it for an evening of family fun!" - Julia Exline, DC Metro Theater Arts
