Some girls like football. Some boys like pink. Everyone likes a good story.

Exploring gender stereotypes in a fun, questioning way, Princess Charming is a celebration of being exactly who you are. This show is for anyone who doesn’t like being told what to do and is about finding the courage to defy expectations.

Our cabaret performers explore what really matters about being a boy and being a girl with dances, songs and skits created with children, for children. 

The theatre is transformed into a family friendly cabaret club full of laughter and sing-a-longs. At the end there is a chance to join in too as we give over the stage to the next generation of cabaret stars.


"What Spun Glass Theatre has done is give children, every child, a voice. It is pertinent and powerful, but most of all it’s extremely fun! Princess Charming teaches kids (and adults) that they can just be themselves." A Younger Theatre 

"a hilarious, touching and truthful performance with a powerful, important message" Female Arts ★★★★

"Princess Charming at The Ovalhouse is an absolute gem of a show. Exploring gender stereotypes using the very clever medium of a cabaret aimed at 7-11 year olds, it is entertaining, informative (though never preachy) and vitally, incredibly relevant."  WestEnd Wilma ★★★★★
