As if navigating classes with the offspring of the Wicked Witch (Freya Parks), Captain Hook (Earl Cave), and King Arthur (Jamie Flatters) wasnt hard enough, according to the Schoolmaster (Laurence Fishburne), only true loves kiss can change the rules and send the girls to their rightful schools and destiny.
