Lost Socks, Love and Lollipops

in the COURT OF KING CARACTACUS

The story centres around two neighbouring royal families. One kingdom is ruled by King Caractacus, who is raising his only daughter Princess Carina, alone. The other kingdom is ruled by Queen Saffira, who - also as a single parent - is raising her only son Prince Eric. The King is quite keen on the gentle Queen Saffira, while Eric is quite keen on the lovely Princess Carina. However, these royal ladies won't be had that easily; setting various hurdles for the King and Prince to jump over in order to prove their love.Meanwhile, something strange is happening throughout the kingdoms - socks keeps going missing, and no-one understands why. The King's assistants call on Stan the Sock Man to help out with the problem - but is Stan everything he's "crack"-ed up to be?
 
The show is a lot of fun (and a bit of silliness) - with great songs and audience interaction - and is sure to be enjoyed by the whole family!
