Background


Originally seen on Broadway in 1959, Princess Fred was originally played by Carol Burnett in her breakout starring role.

Presented by arrangement with R&H Theatricals Europe.


Synopsis


Winnifred, better known as Fred, is not your average princess - she's loud, independent and knows her own mind.


But for her to marry Prince Dauntless, she must prove to his overprotective mother, Queen Aggravain, that she is indeed a true princess in an impossible test.


Set against the colourful backdrop of her beloved's castle and with an upbeat jazzy score, this is the perfect comedy musical to see this holiday season, with the whole family.


A fun, action-packed and big-hearted show that simply must not be missed.
