Join us on a very big adventure at the Royal Ball. The Prince has been captured by two very nasty fairies who won’t let him go unless Princesses Rose and Lilly bring them the Secret of Happiness. There’s only one problem… the Secret is locked firmly inside the Tree of Knowledge and the keys are made of gold. Easy enough to come by, you say?
Well, they might be if it wasn’t for the ghastly Grumblesnitch!
Lots of laughs are guaranteed in Kali Peacock’s fully inclusive production which places children with disabilities, and those without, at its heart. The show is a fantastic opportunity for all families to come together to enjoy a magical shared experience.
