Dream of Romance...at Court (drama skit)
Summary: In the early 18th century at King George I’s court at Kensington Palace, what was it like to wear heavy court dresses? How did guests proceed through various rooms in order to stand in the presence of the king and queen? Three girls in the present time are about to find out as they pretend to be at court.
