This Twist Stuff. What’s it all about?
Once Upon A Time….There lived a mother with two daughters who loved princess stories. Those girls loved princess stories so much that every night, when the mother sat on their bed to read to them, they chose the same stories over and over again… and again… and again… and again. Now Amelia, the mother, was an intelligent woman with a kind heart. Indulging her daughters wishes for princess stories was fun, and at first, seemed harmless. However, night after night, happy ending after happy ending, Amelia became concerned. She felt the stories were imprinting powerful imagery and messages on her daughter’s brains. She sensed the stories were missing something. Not to mention that if she read the same princess story one more time, she thought she might just go half crazy. If only the stories were more.
Princesses With A Twist was born.
Princesses With A Twist is all about what happens to our storybook characters after the classic story ends. The stories our children have come to know continue and so does the entertainment. The Princesses are exciting people making exciting and sometimes difficult choices in their lives. They reveal their secrets and dreams, their fears, and help each other in ways that inspire us to be proud. There is more to Cinderella than just a pretty face. She is an entrepreneur. In fact, she is a serial entrepreneur and a good citizen.
There is more to Sleeping Beauty than her dazzling irresistible beauty. She’s compassionate and caring, and her social prowess is unmatched. Anyone who wants to know how to throw a party knows Sleeping Beauty is the one to turn to. As for a career, Sleeping Beauty doesn’t want one. She is busy with fashion and entertaining, as well as being great friends with The Little Mermaid, whom she is showing the ropes of being a human being. There is more to all of these lovely characters than just a pretty face and a handsome prince.
You see, Princesses With A Twist is not restricted to storybook Princess characters. As our stories grew and morphed, they took on a life of their own.
