The Princess and the Pea

Tutti FruttiBooking Info

“Anyone who enjoys a charming, funny, inventive afternoon at the theatre will be sure to come out with a grin on their face”

British Theatre Guide

Not for the faint hearted… fake princesses… or those who have trouble sleeping at night!

Do you want to hear a true story?
Imagine a place where what you see is not what it seems, with forgotten stories and forgotten things
Do you want to hear an exciting story?
Imagine princesses who don’t know they are princesses and a prince who doesn’t want to be king
Do you want to hear a happy story?
Imagine a real prince, discovering a real princess, and a story which ends happily-ever-after!

Set in the Museum of Forgotten Things, three musical curators, tell the amazing tale of the museum’s artefacts including the mystery of a little green pea and how it got there. Packed with humour and memorable songs, expect a romp through every type of princess you can imagine, with hilarious costumes to match. Meet a demanding queen, an array of wannabe princesses, an unknown girl who is blown into the palace by a gust of wind, and an indecisive prince under pressure to find his real princess. Will he ever find his happy ever after?

In this new and updated adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular story, Mike Kenny and the inventive tutti frutti team will once again create a funny, original, beautiful retelling of this familiar tale.

An Update on Attending Rural Touring Events by Artsreach

Our community volunteers, audiences, funders and sponsors have been simply fantastic during these difficult times, and we thank everyone for their support and encouragement as we resume our indoor programme of live performances this winter.

We want to let you know that your comfort and safety continue to be our top priority, as well as your enjoyment of course. As such, we have created a simple information document about our indoor events and venues, which we will monitor and update throughout the season as required. Read our latest information document here
