When you read The Princess in My Head and perform parts from the play, you’ll hear the voice of Princess Aqualine the Wise, trying so hard to interpret modern day ideas in her Renaissance world. Her voice is determined, and noble and Allison in modern day hears it, and it influences her own decisions and actions. Think about this – Whose is the loudest voice in your head? The voice that guides you? It may be your Mom or Dad. An Aunt or Uncle. An older sister. A teacher. A coach. Or a character from a story who you trusted and admired. When you’re at a friend’s and it’s time to go home, but you want to stay – what voice helps you fulfill your promise to be home on time? When you’re so angry and you want to say something hurtful to anyone, just to be heard – whose is the voice in your head telling you to STOP? Who warns you of the harm you may do? And when you have an idea that others say is silly or stupid, but that you believe might be brilliant? Whose is the voice of your cheerleader that says, “It’s good. Go for it.” This week listen for the voices in your head. The POSITIVE voices. One just might be a real Princess.
