MORE Audience Reviews - Princess Pumpalot 2014



We saw this show with a 4 year old and 6 year old. Absolutely loved it, the children are still talking about the Princess and her farts! There are lots of opportunities for audience participation, it's a real fun show. Great cast. lovely story and fabulous acting. The Princess and Guffy were our favourites. I would thoroughly recommend this show. Caine Max


What an absolute delight! Fantastic show for all Ages extremely Entertaining and an absolute Joy to watch! Princess Pumpalot is a star! 5 stars! Lara Okan


This was a great kids show with a fairytale charm and pantomime humour which is always a hit with the children, we enjoyed the light hearted entertainment and meeting the cast made our day. Karen Cunningham


A great family show! Saw this earlier today with my two daughters who absolutely loved it! They loved the princess and were laughing throughout. The story is well put together and there are plenty of colourful characters; there's a talking giraffe, flying gnomes and much more. It's entertaining for children and adults too and I highly recommend it. The cast were very good and It was well worth our Sunday day out! Gareth Green

Primary Times - Review of Princess Pumpalot (2014)



We join Princess Pumpalot on her 16th birthday when she discovers she needs to find the magic beans so she can protect the castle from the gnomes and what better way to do this than with farts.

This show follows a pantomime like style encouraging lots of audience participation which was great for keeping young attention spans entertained. It was well and enthusiastically acted and they made a great use of the theatre entering and exiting via the side doors. From a grown-up perspective the majority of the humour revolved around one joke but as my children seem to find this subject endlessly amusing they found this hilarious. Also my son’s face when it was his turn to stand up and try to fart to defeat the gnomes more than overcame this.

My daughter loved the surprisingly realistic giraffe. There is a lovely touch at the end after the show where you can meet the princess which completed my children’s enjoyment.
