Event Information

Sat/Sun: 11.30am, 1:30pm & 3.30pm.

Relaxed Performance: Sun 1:30pm

Showing from Sat 27 — Sun 28 Jun

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 fairytale style the young woman passes with fl ying 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 enthrall children and families.

A charming show and a great message to never judge a book by its cover!

Let’s All Dance returns to the egg after previous sell out visits with Alice in Wonderland, The Princess and the Frog and Teddy Bears’ Picnic.
