With your help, she must leave her fears behind and boldly go where no princess has gone before! Suitable for children aged 3 to 8 years old (families welcome).

There will be more amazing workshops for youngsters on Sunday 23rd April, starting with Play & Move with Tmesis Theatre. Children aged 3 to 6 years are invited to come and play, create, move, explore and get physical with Tmesis Theatre. The session will encourage active participation and interaction between children in a fun and relaxed manner.
