Princess Pumpalot Returns To Italy

Italian Theatre Group Photo

This is a fantastic ‘group pose’ by the Italian Theatre Group, The Benvenuto Players.

The Benvenuto Players, an English speaking Youth Theatre Group run by Theatre Producer Alison Parnell, is well-known among the foreign community in Northern Italy and have been delighting the public with pantomimes and classical theatre for almost thirty years.

The students performed a stage production of Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess based on the original text of the first book in June 2015. Esther Mann, the actor who played the Italian Princess Pumpalot in that production, can be seen (if you look closely) in the centre of the group holding a copy of the second Princess Pumpalot book.

We send out a big thank you to Philip Kingscott (our very own Guffy in the 2014 production of Princess Pumpalot) for organising this photo on his recent visit to Italy. #Fart2017
