Aliens in the Castle 2020

Aliens in the Castle returns for a 3rd year of fun!!!

Princess Bethany Finds a Mule

by Adam LeKang

Aliens in the Castle is a “series” created exclusively for Not Just Dance. Students love playing aliens and they also love princes, princesses and everything related to castles. We decided – why not combine the two. Each script is written exclusively for this program and uses the theme “Aliens in the Castle”. In the first year, they performed Arthur and the Urkloids. And, last year, the students performed “Rendalina, or from Rags to Riches and Back to Rags Again”. These fun shows allow all students an opportunity to shine! We are able to write in additional parts and add (or subtract) lines to give each student a chance to have a part that fits their current skill level.

In Princess Bethany Finds a Mule, we meet a royal family with a creative princess, Bethany, that would rather play pirates then attend to her princess duties. The King hires the Miracle Princess Program to help with his daughter. At the same time, we meet A Peliganza Mule from a distant planet who manages to escape to Earth. As Princess Bethany and the Peliganza Mule meet, all of the character collide. But, is that really the ending of this story. Join us this summer as Not Just Dance presents “Princess Bethany Finds a Mule”.
