About the show
The Crab Prince is a seaside version of the Grimm Brothers traditional fairy tale ‘The Frog Prince’. Scuttle The Crab longs to be human. Can little Lucy help to make his dream come true? Should Scuttle The Crab be careful what he wishes for? Meanwhile, Marina The Marine Explorer needs some help to make life in the rock-pools good again for everyone. An original and beautifully crafted comedy show about friendship, home and the environment, with the chance for the audience to help save the day. Art materials provided.
