Thu 04 Apr 2024 - Sat 06 Apr 2024

A subversive, fun-filled adventure for children and their families.

Princess Smartypants does not want to get married. She wants to carry on making music with her menagerie of monstrous pets, but the King and Queen have other ideas... Find out how Princess Smartypants fights to preserve her independence in this hilarious fairy-tale-with-a-difference. Full of songs and madcap comedy, Princess Smartypants is a treat for all the family.

Perfect for anyone who is fed up of traditional fairy tales and wants to see what happens when girls are in charge of the castle.
