Don’t miss this fun event that you and your children are sure to love at !

On Friday mornings at the Quaking Aspen Amphitheater, Keystone’s River Run Village hosts The Prince. This is a fun event especially designed for kids that takes place in the serene and beautiful setting in the forest near the bubbling Snake River at Quaking Aspen Amphitheater in Keystone’s River Run Village.

In the tradition of Pinocchio: An Americana Folktale, The Ant and the Grasshopper, Rapunzel: A Rock N Roll Fairytale, and The Red Cape comes a world premiere family musical, The Prince, from the Lake Dillon Theatre Company. The Kingdom’s royal princes have all mysteriously gone missing. That is, all except Prince Herbert, often dubbed the most ineligible bachelor in the land. But when the awkward Herbert is given the humorously impossible task of serving as royal king-to-be to all the Kingdom’s princesses, he discovers his true self. You and your children are sure to love this original family musical full of humor and heart as Prince Herbert and the entire kingdom discover that true nobility comes from deep within.

Tickets are $5 general admission for parents, children, and all guests.  All seating is general admission. Dates, times, and locations are subject to change at any time. Pets are prohibited. Look for additional showings of The Prince on August 3rd and 10th.
