By Karen Zacarias


Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma


From the novel by Gail Carson Levine


As a baby, Ella was given the "gift" to obey every command. Forced to do whatever is asked, including rubbing her stepsister’s stinky feet, Ella fights for independence.  She sets out on an extraordinary journey to battle ogres, befriend a prince, and crash a giant’s wedding to find her fairy Godmother, Lucinda, to undo the spell. A mythical musical based on the book by Gail Carson Levine, ELLA ENCHANTED explores what it means to find your voice and decide your own fate.
