It all began with a simple observation: Fairy tales always focus on the princess and the prince. The godmother is usually a stock character, fairly one-dimensional. But what about her journey, her trials and tribulations? After all, fairyhood is essentially a job, like waiting tables, or litigating. What’s it really like to be a fairy day in and day out? Since all fairy tales need a spell of some kind and it’s all been done before, we tried to find an original approach. It occurred to us that it would be more exciting to engage the audience’s imagination throughout the show by having Izzy place the spell on the kingdom and not on the princess. It makes the audience imagine horns and warts and scales of green that aren’t really there. – Steven Fisher

Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of to-day. It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul. – Francis Thompson

For anyone who has had a Christian upbringing, or has a friend who is Christian, you understand why being asked to be a confirmation sponsor or a godparent is a big deal.

She wiped away her flowing tears / And scrubbed the kitchen pots and bowls / Watching the dance leaping among / Somber shadows and glowing coals. / But her fairy godmother soon appeared / With a beauteous gown and, in a thrice, / From a pumpkin produced a golden coach / With prancing steeds, once six white mice. / She gave Cinderella a lush bouquet / And a glass slipper she quickly donned, / She turned ashes to flashing jewels / With one wave of her magic wand. – Jose Asuncion Silva

The day that I was christened- / It’s a hundred years, and more!- / A hag came and listened / At the white church door, / A-hearing her that bore me / And all my kith and kin / Considerately, for me, / Renouncing sin. / While some gave me corals, / And some gave me gold, / And porringers, with morals / Agreeably scrolled, / The hag stood, buckled / In a dim gray cloak; / Stood there and chuckled, / Spat, and spoke: / “There’s few enough in life’ll / Be needing my help, / But I’ve got a trifle / For your fine young whelp. / I give her sadness, / And the gift of pain, / The new-moon madness, / And the love of rain.” / And little good to lave me / In their holy silver bowl / After what she gave me- / Rest her soul! – Dorothy Parker

To be able to have someone to grant every wish – she’s my biggest inspiration. – Victoria Clark
