Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St. • Phoenix
East Valley Children’s Theatre celebrates 25 years of theater opportunities for youth age 8-18, kicking off with The Clumsy Princess, Sept. 23-Oct. 3, in the Nesbitt/Elliott Playhouse Theatre in the Mesa Arts Center in downtown Mesa. Winner of EVCT’s 2020 Aspiring Playwrights Contest, The Clumsy Princess is an original work about a charming prince looking for the picture-perfect princess to ask her hand in marriage. Instead, he meets Princess Tilly, who knocks him out of a window, leaving him stranded in his own kingdom on a quest to defeat the beast plaguing the land. Following this hysterical opening production, the next show is a holiday favorite, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the musical, on stage Dec. 2-12.
