The Princess and the Pauper: A Bollywood Tale

By Anu Yadav Inspired by the Mark Twain classic Music by Ashwin Subramanian Directed by Janet Stanford Best for ages 5+ Set in long-ago India, this Bollywood-inspired adaptation of the classic Mark Twain novel shows how the common people work long hours to support the luxurious lifestyle of those in the palace. As a corrupt Wazir seeks to steal the throne from the Sultan's heirs, a spoiled Princess Razia forces a shy dressmaker's daughter, Zainab, to exchange places with her. Razia gradually discovers how unfairly the people are treated and resolves to become a just leader. But, can she expose the Wazir's villainy before he is crowned? In a madcap finale, Razia, Zainab and all the people of Delhi rise up to crash the coronation.
