01 Oct The Chelmsford Ballet Company to perform Beatrix Potter™ Tales as its anticipated 2020 production
The Chelmsford Ballet Company will be performing Beatrix Potter™ Tales in association with Frederick Warne and Co, at the Civic Theatre, Chelmsford 25–28 March 2020.
Many of the delightful Beatrix Potter characters, enjoyed by generations of children, are brought to life in this imaginative musical interpretation of the famous Victorian author’s best known tales.
We see Beatrix engrossed in her work and watch as some of her characters come to life such as Peter Rabbit helping himself to lettuces from Mr. McGregor’s garden, Jeremy Fisher aboard his lily pad, Hunca Munca and Tom Thumb – two very naughty mice – and a cheeky Squirrel Nutkin. Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle gets help with her washing whilst Jemima Puddle-Duck thrills us with her flight from Mr. Tod, and Pigling Bland falls in love with the Black Berkshire Pig on his way to market. Tabitha Twitchit also makes an appearance, joining in the fun.
For its 2020 production, The Chelmsford Ballet Company invites dancers aged 7–10 (and under 4’ 6” tall) to join the company as small animals. Successful candidates will be required to attend rehearsals on several Sundays from January–March 2020. There will be two teams chosen and they will appear in alternate performances between 25–28 March. Completed application forms, found on the company’s website, must be returned by Monday 7 October.
Tickets for Beatrix Potter™ Tales will go on sale during November via the Civic Theatre box office, on 01245 606505.
