Space Rebel Princess

Category: Show Related artist: Fully Booked Theatre

A fearless young princess raised for royalty but not for rocketry, dreams of becoming Uppity Chuck’s first astronaut.

Outsmarting the confines of her palace upbringing, and with the help of the audience, the princess must break free of the fear that holds her back, and boldly go where no princess has gone before!
Inspired by the likes of the first British astronaut, Helen Sharman, engineers and flight controllers throughout the world of space science, who have ignited curiosity and passion in successive generations of young people to pursue science and engineering, Space Rebel Princess seeks to empower young people and to inspire in them a life-long love of stories.

• For children 5-9 and families

• Collaborative with audience participation:

– Decipher alien messages!
– Assemble a giant rocket!
– Float with the princess in zero gravity!
– Save the world!

Children get involved, helping the princess to achieve her mission as she constructs her first ever rocketship in a land where reading and writing has been outlawed…

This is a small-scale work focuses on innovative audience engagement and adventure. Space Rebel Princess combines clowning, physical theatre, dance, craft and poetry to create a piece of joyful, genre-bending performance.

“Space Rebel Princess is a brilliant little show for children with a childlike playfulness at its heart. A great experience for those that took part and fabulously entertaining for those that watched. Genuinely playful genius”
