Queen Zixi of Ix

CLASSIC. Adapted from the novel by L. Frank Baum. This fantastical adventure will charm your audiences with its wit and whimsy. When the Queen of the fairies grows tired of merrymaking, she has her fairies weave a magic cloak that grants its wearer one wish. The Queen orders one of her fairies to give the cloak to the first unhappy person she meets, who happens to be a poor orphan girl, Margaret. Margaret becomes a princess and her brother Bud is declared the new king of Noland. Meanwhile, the rascally, rotund Roly-Rogues have conquered the kingdom of Noland and forced its citizens to tend to their every need. The citizens have to constantly feed the ravenous Roly-Rogues large pots of soup and scratch their big bellies. With the help of Queen Zixi of Ix, King Bud and Princess Margaret must find the magic cloak so they can rid themselves of the maddening Roly-Rogues once and for all.
