The Princess and the Pea
285 Pembina Hwy (South of Confusion Corner)
Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale returns to the Winnipeg stage after more than a decade!
Queen Bessie (or BOSSY, as the Court Jester calls her!) has already determined whom her precious sonny boy will marry.
When a muddy and dishevelled Princess catches the Prince's eye unexpectedly, the Queen insists she pass the "pea under the mattress" test to prove she really is a princess...
This light-hearted new adaptation from the playwright of "SLEEPING BEAUTY" (2015) features twists of contemporary humour, with a happy ending for all.
Children can meet the Princess, Prince, Jester, and other characters in the lobby after the play!
Geared for Ages 3 and Up * Babes in Arms Permitted
