The Princess and the Pea
  • West End

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 fairy tale 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!

Running time: 40 minutes

Suitable for all, especially 2-14 year olds, including those with special needs.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
