THE LAST DANCE OF THE PLUM SISTERS
Produced by Special Arrangement with Selsdon Enterprises
Written by Michael Olsen
Directed by Michaela Smith
Felicia and Prudence Plum wake up in the tower nursery of their outback station house to find themselves chained together. Who has done this and why? And what of the dance to be held at their house? Will they get a chance to dance with the most eligible bachelor in the district, Harry Prince, or will that honour fall to their stepsister, Cindy? And what of their father, Jasper Plum? Will his arrival save them or will the sisters be locked in the tower room forever?

Five famous fairy tale princesses sit on a train station waiting to be carried into “happily-ever-after”. Who knows how long they’ve been waiting, or what/who will arrive on the train. Will their Prince ever arrive? Will Sleeping Beauty realise she’s getting wrinkles? Will Cinderella ever tell anyone what’s in her suitcase? Is Belle really as nice as she seems and why is she giving Snow White an apple? Is Rapunzel really that ditzy? All these questions and more will be answered!
