In another part of the land, Prince Topher is having a hard time finding his purpose in life, even though he is to become king soon. After defeating a giant in battle, Prince Topher stumbles upon Ella in front of her home. He commends Ella after he witnesses her kindness towards a homeless woman. Miles away at the palace, a ball is held to find Prince Topher a wife. When he meets the woman of his dreams at the ball (Ella) she disappears leaving behind a glass slipper. After a kingdom-wide search Prince Topher finds his love. And of course, they live happily ever after!

CAUTIONS: If this was a movie it would be rated PG. There are lots of fun musical numbers and even children who haven’t reached the age of irony will likely have a good time. Your own judgement is the best guide for your family.
