Third Grade Presents “Princess Whatsername”

A Broadway-worthy performance by the talented Third Grade students at Palm Beach Day Academy and their leader, Music Director Robyn Huff, drew a full house to the Smith Family Theater in the Matthews Center for Performing Arts on the evening of Tuesday, March 3.

This year’s annual Third Grade Musical was “Princess Whatsername,” a clever story that intertwines all of our favorite fabled princes, princesses and fairytale creatures into one story. The musical opens in the Misty Forest, where a sleeping girl (played by Elle M. and Riley N.) awakes to find that she has lost her memory. With no recollection of who she is, where she is from or how she got to the Forest, she embarks on a journey to find her identity and along the way, meets Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella and Rapunzel, just to name a few.

Congratulations to the Third Grade students and their teachers on an outstanding performance!
