A Real Prince is a dance performance about friendship, play and social skills. In this whimsical dance-theatre piece for the whole family our main character Mette is searching for a soul mate to share the happy as well as the sad moments.


The performance is inspired by the famous literary fairy tale The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Andersen. In this new take on an old tale by AB-Dance Company and JoJo-Oulu Dance Centre the audience in the theatre finds themselves in the middle of a topsy-turvy Play Date where new friendship candidates are tested with increasingly dotty assignments.


Mette is quite a character so you better put your best foot forward or you might risk missing the boat altogether. But are her expectations so sky-high that all the contenders are due to fail? Will our three princes win her over?

Performances will be performed in cooperation with Oulu Theater. They are part of Oulu Children's and Youth Theater Festival.
