Why go and see it?

For catchy songs, brilliant puppets, and muddy mayhem!

This bold and energetic new musical follows the air-raising adventures of Pintsize, the youngest and most daring piglet on Mudpuddle Farm.

Pigs Might Fly

Pintsize loves nothing more than playing with his next-farm-neighbour and best friend Diana the sheep, but one day Pintsize wakes up to discover a tall fence built between their two farms. Devastated by the loss of playtime with his best pal and the fact that pigs can't jump over fences, Pintsize resolves that he will figure out how to fly over it instead.

Can his determination and ingenuity defy the laws of physics? Will crotchety Farmer Rafferty finally make peace with his neighbour, Farmer Brightwell? Can Albertine the clever goose keep Pintsize from hurting himself as he tries to fly?

The Princess Theatre first opened its doors on Wednesday 7 June 1961. Top of the bill on the opening night were the late, great Tommy Cooper and the legendary Morecombe & Wise.  In 1963 The Beatles appeared live on stage singing the then newly released single “She Loves You” causing some hysteria in the town! 

The Princess Theatre is South Devon’s largest theatre with a seating capacity of 1,491.  Big musical productions that have thrilled our audiences include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Chicago, Starlight Express, Rocky Horror, Cats, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Icons of the stage and screen Sir Roger Moore, Elaine Page, Joan Collins and the beloved Joan Rivers, have also graced our stage. Comedians Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr and Dawn French have performed here too and chart toppers Mumford & Sons, Jamie Cullum and Ronan Keating have included the theatre on their UK tours.
