A ballet version of the heart-warming tale The Princess and the Frog is coming to Luton Library Theatre.

Suitable for two to nine- year-olds and their families, this original ballet by Let’s All Dance aims to charm audiences both young and old, exploring the theme of friendship through simple storytelling.

It tells the story of a beautiful princess. She loved playing with her golden ball but one day she drops it in the pond.

When a very friendly and very bouncy frog offers to retrieve it in exchange for her friendship, she is far from keen. But in the end the princess must agree to be his friend just to get her ball back.

Slowly their friendship grows and the princess is rewarded in true fairytale style.

There are three performances over Friday April 29 and Saturday April 30, days each lasting 30 minutes. There will also be a photo opportunity at the end of each performance for parents and carers to take a picture of their child with the cast members. Voluntary donations are welcome for the photo opportunity.

Tickets cost £8 per person or £24 for four. Call 01582 878100 or visit lutonculture.com to book or for more information.
