Full Description

Family Christmas show? Yes, please! We all want to come together this December, and if you are looking for a fun-filled family afternoon or evening out, then it’s got to be Trinity Theatre this year.

The Prince and the Pauper, A Fun Family Christmas Show 2021

As King Henry VIII lays on his death bed, his son Edward is reluctant to face the trials of kingship whilst in Pudding Lane, an impoverished Tom Canty dreams of a better life. A chance encounter between the two reveals that they look almost identical. Let the farce begin!

Jemma Kennedy’s adaptation brings Mark Twain’s classic story storming into magical multicolour life. In this wildly funny tale of haves and have-nots, we embark on a Tudor journey that revels in the merriest of music and bursts into life on our stage in full fantastical vibrancy!

It’s time to delve into History (Horrible or not) as we invite you to embrace festive family fun in this rollicking comedy, one that delivers with a moral heart. It’s Christmas, after all…

“After the last couple of years, I wanted to make a family Christmas show that is full of laughter, adventure and wonderful music to bring us all back together in the best way I know how – joyful theatre!”

Sean Turner – Artistic Director, Trinity Theatre 

With thanks to our Christmas Show & NHS Performance Partner, Panoramic Wealth

“On a personal note, as a family, Trinity Theatre has a special place in our hearts. Both our children have been on the stage numerous times for their primary school summer shows and prize giving.  In more recent times we have been a corporate supporter of Trinity and continue to enjoy working with Sara Rice and her Team.” Jill Jefferies, Panoramic Wealth
