The Secret is out for Princess Cruises

The Oscar-winning composer, Stephen Schwartz, has created a third production show, The Secret Silk, for Princess Cruises.

The show, which tells the story of a young woman who possesses the gift of creating brilliant silk fabrics, will open on the 3,560-guest Royal Princess in the Caribbean in February before heading to the UK for a series of round Britain sailings between May and September.

The Secret Silk, adapted from the ancient fable The Grateful Crane, will feature life-size puppetry by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, along with music, dance and visuals.

Stephen Schwartz is a multi-Oscar, Tony and Grammy award winner and the composer of shows including Wicked, Pippin and Godspell.

The Secret Silk is directed by Tony award-nominated John Tartaglia, who has performed a number of roles on Broadway including in Avenue Q, Beauty and the Beast and Shrek The Musical.

The show premieres aboard Royal Princess, followed by Island Princess in May for its Alaska season and the Asia-based Diamond Princess in the autumn.

Stephen Schwartz said: “I am thrilled to have John Tartaglia join me on this production journey with Princess. His puppetry mastery is sure to dazzle guests on the high seas.”
