Adopted Asian-American, Chloe Ellsworth finally finishes college and returns home to her family farm in Middle Valley, Indiana.  Just when she is about to settle into her new life, her royal birth family lands on her doorstep and informs her that she is to return with them immediately to her native country and take her place at the throne.  It's a fairy tale journey that helps her answer questions that have been plaguing her her entire life, culminating in a profound realization about who she is.

Premiere Musicals: Developing New Musical Theatre at Indiana University is working with the talented team of Michael Heitzmana dn Ilene Reid from the first note to finished script and score of Happily Ever Chloe. The presentations will reflect the work accomplished during the workshop that began in the spring with initial meetings, writing and composition over the spring and summer, culminating in a workshop presentation with the talents of the B.F.A. musical theatre students.
