"tutti frutti enraptures its young audience with a wonderful and warm piece of theatre, enriched by Mike Kenny’s inventive script."The Stage
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 museums artefacts including the mystery of a little green pea and how it got there. This one hour of fun is packed with humour and memorable songs, including a romp through every type of princess you can imagine, with hilarious costumes to match.
The audience meet a demanding queen, an array of wannabe princesses, and our main characters, 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 a real princess or his happy ever after?
This show was originally made by tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal in 2014 with an extensive tour and Christmas run at the Sheffield Crucible before playing to sell out audiences in Hong Kong and Singapore in January 2015. 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.
The show suitable for everyone over 3 years old. Running time will be approximately 1 hour.
There will be a relaxed performance at 1.30pm on Tuesday 28 December 2021.
