“Princess Pikkiriikki - The Hero of All The Naughties” is a puppet theatre play for children in pre and primary schools. The performance is based on a joyful children’s book series by Hannele Lampela ja Ninka Reitu. This is the first time Princess Pikkiriikki is adapted to puppets. The colourful tabletop puppets and prankish storytelling that tickles imagination brings the child’s world close to us, and the episodic structure carries even the smallest spectators through the performance. Princess Pikkiriikki offers both the child and adult audiences a recognizable, hilarious and ambitious puppet theatre experience. 

Fall 2021 performance times to be announced later!
