During the February Half Term week I took the kiddies and Nanny to see a delightful fairy tale show at the Regent Centre called Once Upon a Princess.
My daughter Lucy is nearly 3 now and Nanny bought her a beautiful Frozen dress for the occasion which she twirled around in at every opportunity. Seeing all the little Princesses in the theatre foyer was super cute and I couldn’t wait to see Lucy’s face when the grown up Princesses were out on stage.
Ally Cox who plays Fairy Muddled finds herself in the Fairyland Library but the books have got mixed up and she needs help getting the pages back in the right book. We loved each Princess being introduced into the story and the kids in the audience screamed out their names when they had to guess who it was. Of course if there’s a Princess then there must be a Prince, but who would he marry?
We saw Snow White, Rapunzel and Belle to name just a few and the pop hits and musical classics had us boogying in our chairs and singing along. Expect plenty of sparkle, beautiful costumes, singing, dancing and good old fairy tale entertainment in this delightful show.
Even now, some time after the show when we ask Lucy what Elsa does she crosses her arms with attitude and pouts her lips which cracks me up. It’s not easy getting a theatre review from a 2 year old but she’s talked about it lots and keeps asking for a dressing up box full of Princess dresses so I’d say it was a big hit!
Once Upon a Princess is currently on tour but they will be back in Dorset at the Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne on Sunday 12 May 2019. For ticket prices and times of both performances please visit the Tivoli Wimborne.
Dorsetmums was invited to see Once Upon a Princess for the purpose of a review however all words are my own.
