The Princess and the Sprout, and other festive tales.

by Wrongsemble

theatre, children-and-family

A magical family Christmas show for children aged 3-9 and their grown-ups, full of festive fun and fairytales. Available Xmas 2019 & 2020.

about the production

Three festive fables are brought to life to teach each of our 3 librarians a valuable lesson with more than a nod to some of the most famous fairy-tales around. The stories of ‘A Christmas Carol’ mashed up with ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’, ‘The Red Shoes’ and ‘The Princess and the Pea (sprout) are realised in an exciting reimagination like never before! These fantastic festive fairy-tales are brought to the stage by the brilliant Wrongsemble with a sprinkling of live music, wonderful characters, puppetry and live Foley.
