A Monster of a Musical
Once Upon A Time Theatre Company formally T.P.P. Theatrical Productions, are a touring theatre company and have been performing all over Wales since 2001.
We write all our own shows and have been commissioned to write and tour several educational shows for the Mid Glamorgan EBP, (Education and Business Partnership) and Caerphilly County Council Health Department.
We believe in quality theatre that can be enjoyed by all. Positive messages and serious issues can be understood more clearly when delivered in an entertaining and imaginative way.
