By Janine Sobeck, dramaturg
Welcome to Princess Academy. My name is Janine Sobeck and I am the dramaturg on this exciting new adaption of Shannon Hale’s popular book. As we prepare for our May 29th opening, I will be posting the journey our cast and creative team have taken to transform this story from the page to stage. Stay tuned for insights into the adaption process, sneak peeks into the rehearsal room, a look at the work of our designers, and even an interview with award winning author Shannon Hale. I hope that you will follow along before joining us in the Pardoe Theatre.
