Staging

The show has five basic locations:
- a castle's throne room
- a princess's bedroom
- the WOFAs' headquarters
- a forest path
- a corridor in the castle

There are also some conversations which can be held at the front of the stage as the set is changed. But we haven't really addressed staging and choreography in the script. What you do, and how far you want to go, is largely up to you.
