About the Show
"I am a Princess, a Daughter of the King.
But this is not a fairy tale, it's real as real can be.
He clothed me in purple, gave me a crown of life, and made me royalty.
That's why I bow my knees and I lift my hands.
I give Him praise for all He’s done for me.
For I'm a Princess, a Daughter of the King!"
Meet the King sisters: the sassy, sophisticated and sensible daughters of the late pastor of the King Memorial Church. As different as night and day, their deep love for each other is about the only thing on which they can always agree.
Deanna and Ophelia reunite with their older sister, Renee, for the church's annual Homecoming Revival expecting the usual: a little family and a little feudin', mixed with a whole lot of fun!
But this year will be different.
When a mysterious, regal visitor appears and reveals a life-changing secret, the sisters discover they have more in common than any of them ever dared to dream.
Runtime: Approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
DAUGHTER OF THE KING. Book, lyrics, and music by playwright/composer S. Kristi Douglas.
