Disney princesses drop in at Mattapoisett Library

Dec 30, 2017

A little bit of Disney magic was mixed into the cold winter air on December 29, when three of the studio's most popular princesses dropped in to say hello to Mattapoisett children.

Belle, Cinderella and Rapunzel (alongside rascal iguana pal, Pascal) all stopped in to tell the crowd of nearly 50 children their stories, and sing a few songs.

Several members of the audience wore their favorite princess costumes, while a cheerful Olaf the Snowman (from "Frozen") was also found greeting others.

Cinderella began the storytelling after a brief introduction.

"I lived with my stepmother and two stepsisters, who didn't like me," she said, before going on to sing, "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes." Before she began to sing, she asked the audience if they knew the song.

"Yes!" the children chorused excitedly.

Belle then told her story of attempting to rescue her father, being kidnapped by the Beast, and falling in love. She sang "Beauty and the Beast."

Rapunzel, the last of the trio to tell her story, sang "When Will my Life Begin," followed by "I See the Light," from the movie "Tangled."

After the singing and stories were over, the princesses invited all the children up to the front of the room for a meet-and-greet and photo opportunities.
