If you thought you knew the story of “the princess and the pea,” you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that princess winnifred actually swam the moat to reach prince dauntless the drab? Or that lady larken’s love for sir harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic or royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Tickets can be purchased at the cultural center box office in person, online or by calling 604-391-show (7469) adults $24.30; seniors/students $22.30 and two preview shows at $12.30 each seat (including a $2.30 box office fee).
