PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MONTEREY - The Monterey Peninsula College Theatre Department concludes our 2007-2008 Storybook Theatre season, sponsored in part by TARGET, with SIR SLOB AND THE PRINCESS, written by George Garrett. SIR SLOB AND THE PRINCESS plays Friday & Saturday at 7:00 PM and Saturday & Sunday at 3:00 PM, from April 4 to April 20 in the Studio Theatre, on the Monterey Peninsula College campus. MPC is located at 980 Fremont Street, downtown Monterey.
SIR SLOB AND THE PRINCESS is directed by Theatre Department Co-Chair Gary Bolen, who directed such recent MPC Productions as A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORM, GUYS & DOLLS, GREASE, and URINETOWN: THE MUSICAL, returning later this year. SIR SLOB AND THE PRINCESS marks Bolen’s first time directing for our highly successful MPC Storybook Theatre program.
SIR SLOB AND THE PRINCESS tells the story of a kitchen scullion who tries to win the hand of the beautiful Princess, Rosebud. When the King has decided it is time for his daughter to marry, he devises a test so difficult to pass that none of the prospective suitors want to try it: None of them, except Slob, who heads off into the woods with his talking horse, where he encounters danger and adventure. Through naiveté, luck, and an honest nature, Slob pratfalls his way past the danger, stumbling & bumbling over all obstacles, to win the hand of the Princess.
SIR SLOB AND THE PRINCESS plays 7:00 PM Friday & Saturday (April 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 & 19); and 3:00 PM Saturday & Sunday (April 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20).
