The Princess and the Goblin

The Princess and the Goblin

'The Princess and the Goblin', written by by George MacDonald, adapted by NTC's Karen Hirst and directed by Louis Roberts, tells the story of Princess Irene who is to be the bride of the goblin king's son — but unfortunately he hasn't actually asked her yet.

It’s an adventure about the goblin’s attempts to steal away the princess and her success in avoiding them, with a lot of help from Curdie, the miner's son, and her mysterious great-great-grandmother, whom no-one else can see...

It’s a story about growing up, making friends and the importance of family, with song, dance and some fun along the way told in NTC's fast-paced, physical style. (Age guideline 5+)

We would like to express our thanks to The Barbour Trust, the Ridley Family Trust, the Banks Community Fund, The 1989 Willan Charitable Trust for their support.
