Prince Brat and the Whipping Boy

Regular price $12.00
( / )

Sid Fleischman’s Newberry Award-winning book The Whipping Boy translates perfectly to the stage with this hilarious musical adaptation. The play traces the unlikely friendship between horrible Horace, aka “Prince Brat”, and Jemmy, the street urchin who’s been brought to court and put in fancy clothes to take the Prince’s punishment for him. Though Jemmy has plans for a solo escape, he’s enlisted by the Prince as a companion runaway. The two soon encounter trouble from the outlaws Cutwater and Hold-Your-Nose-Billy, and Jemmy’s wit must save them. In the spirit of Twain’s Prince and the Pauper, this winning adventure is surefire fun.
