New ballet for children is the purr-fect family treat! This May at King George’s Hall

This May, Northern Ballet will bring their newest ballet for children, Puss in Boots, to King George’s Hall.

Inspired by the much-loved fairy tale, Puss in Boots tells the story of a remarkable cat who, despite being both clever and charming, always seems to bring his master bad luck.

Puss in Boots is no ordinary cat. Clever and charming, he takes life in his stride and befriends everyone he meets. The only thing is, he always seems to bring his master, Jack, bad luck.

Join Puss and Jack on their adventure as they meet a flurry of lovable characters, and even come face to face with royalty!

Bringing this much-loved children’s story to life, Puss in Boots is the perfect opportunity for your little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre.

With sell-out performances and a string of hugely successful CBeebies TV adaptations, Northern Ballet’s productions for children are not to be missed.

Daniel de Andrade, Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director of Children’s Ballets, said: “We are delighted to be touring Puss in Boots so extensively across the country next spring. Our short ballets have been enchanting children across the UK for several years, creating a truly magical live dance experience for the whole family to enjoy.

“We now look forward to continuing that tradition with Jenna Lee’s new production.”

This child friendly performance lasts approximately 40 minutes.
Book now for this purr-feet family treat!
