Princesses is a musical-within-a-musical story of a group of upscale teen girls forced to put on a school production of A Little Princess. When superstar of stage and screen Kevin Finch pays a visit to his daughter Miranda at the elite Reardon Boarding School where he has warehoused her since the death of her mother, he winds up taking over as director and co-star. Suddenly, the rebellious, reluctant students find a reason to be interested in putting on a show, and Miranda and Kevin find a way to connect for the first time. Created by veterans David Zippel (City of Angels, The Goodbye Girl, Hercules, Mulan), Cheri and Bill Steinkellner (Four-time Emmy-winners for Cheers and Disney’s Teacher’s Pet), and Matthew Wilder (Mulan, “Break My Stride,” and recent hits by No Doubt, Christina Aguilera, and Kelly Clarkson).
