How can King finally show who he is when the people around him only see him for who he was? This searing drama is about survival, loss, and redemption. Dandelions is about who gets to stay and who’s weeded out.

Princess Di Gone but Still Kicking!
July 13 - August 6
The iconic figure of Princess Diana Spencer shocked the entire world with her untimely death in 1997. Jillann Gabrielle has her speaking from her grave as a spirit haunting the halls of Kensington Palace. And there is a twist…she has aged. She cut a deal with St. Peter at heaven’s gate. She would be allowed to stay with her sons at the palace…but in return she would age. Diana had a great sense of humor, played the piano, sang, and danced. All of these skills are utilized as Diana spins the story of her personal and public life and the British monarchy—then AND NOW! Another provocative and delightful production from Jillann Gabrielle’s Paradise Playhouse.
