Northern Ballet’s Three Little Pigs trots off on tour

Following sell–out performances at its première in Leeds, Northern Ballet’s new ballet for children, Three Little Pigs, embarks on an extensive tour to 21 theatres across the UK from Tuesday 11 March.

The second production in Northern Ballet’s series of Short Ballets for Small People, Three Little Pigs follows
the sell-out success of Ugly Duckling, which became a BAFTA award-winning TV adaptation for CBeebies.

Choreographed by Northern Ballet dancers Hannah Bateman and Victoria Sibson, Three Little Pigs brings to life the famous fable of how the little pigs escape the Big Bad Wolf as he tries to huff and puff and blow their houses down.

Selina McGonagle, Director of Learning at Northern Ballet, said, “I am so pleased that we are able to tour the work of Northern Ballet to smaller venues across the Northern region making the work of the company accessible to young children and their families. This fun, lively production is a brilliant way to introduce under 5’s to seeing ballet and visiting the theatre.  After the great success of Ugly Duckling, I hope even more children will delight in the adventures of the Three Little Pigs!”

The performance is 30 minutes in length making it perfect for young children. Three Little Pigs is performed to live music and includes classical compositions and theme tunes from popular children’s cartoons such as Frank Churchill’s ‘Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?’.

This colourful, comic and entertaining production has been created to introduce children and young families to live dance, music and theatre at an affordable price. Tickets range from £4 to £8 depending on the venue.
