I know, I know, it’s only May, but I had a little press release from the Sherman Theatre this week that I just had to share.
Sherman Cymru and Theatr Iolo have announced that their Christmas show for 2015 is to be a new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale The Princess and the Pea / Y Dywysoges a’r Bysen Fechan Fach, a fun filled story for the under 7s and their families.
Once upon a time there was a Prince who wanted to marry a Princess. But only a Real princess would do! Then one night during a horrible gusty storm, whirlwinds and flashes of lightning, a beautiful young girl arrives at the Castle soaking wet… Is she a real Princess? Find out in this playful, lively story with a prince, princesses, lots of mattresses and a tiny little pea!
The Princess and the Pea / Y Dywysoges a’r Bysen Fechan Fach will open at the Sherman Theatre on 6 and 7 November before touring across South Wales in November and returning back to the Sherman Theatre from 7 December 2015 to 2 January 2016. Full details of the tour will be announced shortly.
I’m sure the show will be as magical as last year’s Christmas children’s show the Ugly Duckling – children’s shows at the Sherman never fail to delight!
