Princess Pumpalot meets Michelangelo's David

It’s with great pleasure we can announce the Italian premiere of Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess with a stage production, based on the original text of the book, taking place in Northern Italy in June 2015.

The production will be performed by the Benvenuto Players - an English speaking Youth Theatre Group run by Theatre Producer Alison Parnell who will also be directing the show. The Benvenuto Players are well-known among the foreign community in the area and have been delighting the public with pantomimes and classical theatre for almost 30 years.

This year's hastag is #Fart2017

Princess Pumpalot stares at FAQ


We saw this show with a 4 year old and 6 year old. Absolutely loved it, the children are still talking about the Princess and her farts! There are lots of opportunties for audience participation, it's a real fun show. Great cast. lovely story and fabulous acting. The Princess and Guffy were our favourites. I would thoroughly recommend this show.
