Marylka and The Prince

A play with songs performed by Dramarama participants aged 8 – 13 years old. The story is a Polish Folk tale, adapted by the school children of Stroud and Harriet Banks in 2009 for a singing festival. It tells the story of unexpected events in the Royal Kingdom of Bucolicolia, a prince is in search of a princess, but things don’t run as smoothly as the Royal Family hopes.

The words were created from ideas generated by the children in drama workshops led by Rachel Thomas and honed by Harriet. Music was written by local composer and jazz musician Pete Rosser and it was originally performed as an oratorio by over 200 children from primary schools in the Stroud Valleys.

These songs form the basis of the show, which has now been scripted by Rachel and turned into a theatrical delight by Suki Hutcheson.

The show is appropriate for all ages, although at a running time of approximately 2 hours it may be challenging for under 6s.
