Pirate Princess – GET CREATIVE

Friday 2nd August


Age guidance: 5 to 11 but suitable for all ages

Kids go free!


Pirate Princess is a heart warming story of hope against adversity told with physical theatre, clowning and circus. This brand new solo show by circus performer and professional idiot Gemma Bond tells the tale of poor shipwrecked Princess Poppy. Can she overcome a big dress, extreme weather and the ultimate test of strength to see her way to safety?

Inspired by strong and inventive women of history Poppy must transform physically and mentally if she is to have any hope of rescuing herself from eternity on an island in the ocean. The show encourages all to reuse, repurpose and recycle as Poppy reinvents her outfit and her mindset to overcome her predicament.

A visual feast of colourful costume and a unique crow’s nest on a pole prop, this is a fun filled show for children aged 5 to 11 and their families.



“Phenomenal act! Pole work made family friendly is fantastic! Listening to the children’s reactions was my favourite! Engaging from beginning to end – genuinely entertaining. Such a

family-friendly, feminist driven tale. Personally enjoyed this more than any Panto in recent years. Please tour.”

“Amazing performance! Loved the limited diologue – made it so accessible and really easy to follow and engrossing for children.”

“Overall, super creative, beautifully put together”
