Back by popular demand, the Women's Theatre Festival and Sonorous Road Theatre will present "The Princess Talks," which organizers tell me is best for girls ages 10 and up and their moms, grandmothers, aunts and friends.

Shows are Friday through Sunday and include a pink carpet gala at 7 p.m., Saturday, with a silent auction, door prizes and refreshments.

Tickets for the gala are $30. Proceeds will benefit the Women’s Theatre Festival’s 2017 production fund, which will be used to produce five full-length plays written, directed and produced by women, and Sonorous Road’s move and renovation project.

Tickets for the other performances are $15 a piece.

Here's a description of the show from the Women's Theatre Festival: "The Princess Talks consists of skits and comedic monologues by famous princesses and storybook personalities throughout time. Audiences will discover what these princesses really have on their mind! Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Fairy Godmother, and The Tooth Fairy are among the many characters who will share their insights. Moms, daughters, sisters, aunts, and grandmothers will all relate to what these ladies have to say."

The live show is rated PG for language and subject matter, which is why it's best for ages 10 and up.

Shows are 8 p.m., Friday; 7 p.m., Saturday; and 3 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are on sale now. Sonorous Road Theatre is on Oberlin Road near Cameron Village in Raleigh.

    Moms, this is a great activity for mom and daughter - this weekend only. Even though it's a comedy, there's frank discussion, so appropriate for daughters 10+, pre-teens, and teens. Modern versions of the fairytale princesses discuss things like: being an introvert, falling in love, it's okay to be single, body image and fat-shaming, the importance of friendship.
