Princesses director, Jennifer Sparks says, “The Children’s holiday production is my favorite of the year. I get to be involved in a show with my family, either acting or directing , as well as working with many others who feel like family. I enjoy watching these young, talented people take an everyday, ordinary script and turn it into something magical with their hard work and talent . I love being able to help them achieve this by steering them in the direction of my creative vision and watching them develop it.”
