At their wit's end, they send out a decree offering great riches to anyone who can transform their daughter. Dame Goodwit offers to take Esmeralda to her home, where, with the help of her five daughters, she transforms this plain princess into a royal beauty. General admission is $15. $10 for seniors, students and alumni.
