“…this production has been given a sprinkling of the legendary Watermill magic…”The Stage

Long, long ago, in a faraway land of mystery and wonder, a cruel king listens as a beautiful princess tells him stories – magical tales of princes and fishermen, flying horses and fabulous treasures, talking animals and powerful genies. Will she find the one story that will save them both, and fill his heart with joy and love? Or is she doomed to die, and the king to remain forever alone?

Full of mystical creatures, magical transformations and enchanting music, expect a show crammed full with delights and surprises drawn from one of the greatest collection of stories ever.

From the creators of Watermill hits Treasure Island and The Wind In The Willows.
