Synopsis: Enter the magical world of twelve princesses who love to dance. Each night, they sing the song that allows them secret passage into the enchanted forest. Once they arrive, the trees sparkle and chime with silver and gold leaves, beautiful music plays and the spirit of their mother watches over them. In the meantime, their father, the king, is perplexed, and the shoemaker and his apprentices are exasperated, but the princesses must dance. Then one day, the king (tired of finding twelve pairs of worn shoes outside his daughters’ room each morning) issues a proclamation. The first person to discover the secret of where the princesses go each night shall receive his or her heart’s desire and eight bags of gold! After an entertaining visit from the Prince of Arrogance (“Talking about me is my favorite thing to do!”), Matthew the commoner comes to visit. And when the Spirit Mother gives Matthew an invisibility cloak, events rapidly begin to change.
