A musical theatre reimagining of The Light Princess but without an evil sorceress lurking in the woods. Our heroine just is who she is, and maybe she doesn’t need to change to fit in, maybe the world needs to change instead. This time a kiss from a prince isn’t going to cut it.

Travel with Orla and the Princess as they reimagine their world for the better, moving from a land where the only thing on offer is turnips, to one where anything is possible.

The Light Princess explores themes of friendship and individuality and reminds us that we can all come together to build a world that’s for all of us, just as we are.

These shows take place at the Albany, Douglas Way, London, SE8 4AG.
