Show Information

The Sherman Theatre's The Princess and the Pea, is going on tour!  Bringing the joy of Christmas at the Sherman to children and families across South Wales.

In a magical Kingdom far, far away lived a Prince. A Prince whose one true wish was to marry a Princess. One night, in the flash and crash of lightning, in the howl and whine of the wind there was a knock at the castle door and a girl was blown in... but surely she couldn't be a Princess?

There was only way to find out...FETCH THE ROYAL PEA and hide it under the mattress! Only a real Princess would be able to feel such a tiny thing hiding there!

Join Sherman Cymru and Theatr Iolo this Christmas for a deliciously mischievous re-telling of one of Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tales.

Filled with laughter, music and a big sprinkling of magic, this story is perfect for 3 to 6 year olds and their families.

Activity Pack

We’ve created an activity pack to give you an insight into the world created within the show. The pack has been designed for teachers, parents and carers to use both before and after visiting the show, in the classroom or at home.

The activities within the pack can be adapted to suit each pupil or child’s age and ability. They are a creative introduction to many aspects of theatre — from drama and music, to art and design — involving improvisation, imagination, and storytelling.
