More information from organisers: The Princess and the Pea is approximately 40 minutes, with no interval.

When a young Prince is in search of a bride, his mother, The Queen, is on the lookout for a real Princess. But after several months the Prince has not met anyone he likes.

One night, a young woman turns up on the steps of the palace, wet through from a huge storm. The Queen takes one look at her muddy clothes and bedraggled hair and does not believe she is a real Princess. So that night the Queen sets the young woman a test.

In true fairytale style the young woman passes with flying colours and wins the heart of the Prince with her spirit and determination.

This gorgeous new production mixes Let’s All Dance’s signature crystal clear narrative, fantastic dancing, beautiful costumes and lovely music to enthral children and families. A charming show and a great message to never judge a book by its cover!
