The story is about the daughters of a widowed King (Roy Dotrice) who somehow wear out their dance-slippers every night despite being locked in their room until morning. The secret is not discovered until a crafty soldier (Peter Weller) follows them and finds that they go dancing in a fairy-kingdom under the ground.
This must surely be my favourite, because its everything a fairytale should be; romantic, funny, sad and incredibly-entertaining. Lesley Ann Warren looks luminous and has a remarkable chemistry with Peter Weller.
The story also features Sachi Parker (the beautiful and talented daughter of Shirley MacLaine) as the comical youngest princess; as well as Zelda Rubinstein (Tangina from the POLTERGEIST trilogy).
Most FAERIE TALE THEATRE fans single out this episode as their all-time favourite (with TALE OF THE FROG PRINCE coming a close second). This was actually the final episode ever made of FTT.
About this episode:
The Dancing Princesses is one of the best episodes from Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre. When six princesses wear out their new dancing shoes every night while locked in their bedroom, their father the king is determined to learn the cause. Only a humble soldier is able to solve the puzzle.
