The international theatre company the Madrid Players presents their Christmas pantomime, The Real Fairytale, a musical comedy for the whole family, performed entirely in English.
A show where you discover that women can be heroines and princes can be vulnerable. A fun event for the whole family, packed with magic, colour, and live music, with a cast made up of 17 adults and 20 children.
The Real Fairytale tells the story of a young girl called Belle who loves reading and has a curious mind that takes her on a great adventure. Belle comes across all her favourite characters from books in a city filled with magic and music. But all is not as wonderful as it might seem, as the Wicked Queen and the Big Bad Wolf are on the prowl, with the help of a group of mischievous characters led by a well-known double act. Can Belle give this magical land a happy ending?
