BOOK NOW

A magical, musical tale full of joy and laughter, this new adaptation of Mark Twain’s novel tells the classic story of dreams, ambition and friendship with heart-warming original songs. 

THE STORY

Two young dreamers with very different lives long for change. The Prince is bored of royal life, of endless parties and rules and grown-ups. Most of all, he hates the grown-ups and wishes he had friends his own age to play with. Outside the palace walls in the bustling streets of London, a young girl who loves to play music and dance dreams of escaping her humble life to perform for the finest people in the city.

When their two worlds collide, the prince and the pauper embark on a thrilling adventure beyond their wildest imaginations. Switching places to live each other’s lives, will they ever be the same again?
