A fresh and fun retelling of a classic fairytale brought to life by director Gail McIntyre and writer Mike Kenny.
Join a medley of magical Nannas as they take you into the story of the young princess Briar Rose. There's a party at the castle and everyone in the kingdom is invited.
But someone's been missed off the list and she's not very happy about it - and so begins a timeless adventure packed with princesses, a prince, several frogs, a few parties, hummable songs, and plenty of over-exuberant plant growth.
This is Mike Kenny and Gail McIntyre's seventh collaboration for the Playhouse so, whether you haven't missed a single show or this is your first, this sparkling new version of an age old tale is the perfect Christmas treat.
The performances on 11th January are Relaxed Performance, especially to meet the specific needs of young people with learning disabilities and their families. This includes a more relaxed and tolerant attitude to noise and movement in the audience, detailed pre-show information, extra dedicated staff to assist with seating and access issues, additional lighting during the performance, freedom to leave the auditorium at any point; a quiet sensory area for anyone who needs it and extra wheelchair spaces.
