What became of the Red Shoes?
Almost 80 children and grown-ups came to the Community Centre on Saturday afternoon to find out the answer to this all-important question. They were treated to a journey of adventure — from Ruby's Granny's attic on wet day, onto a pirate ship on the high seas, into the jungle, then north to the frozen wastes and finally into space, before Ruby returned to Granny's attic and found that the red shoes had, of course, been there all along. And it was Granny who rounded things off by donning the sparkling red shoes and giving us a wonderful display of tap dancing.
The show was presented by Little Pixie Productions, which creates original family theatre shows, and was supported by Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. It was performed by the amazingly versatile Rebecca Little, who also co-wrote and devised it along with director Victoria Sklar, and who also wrote the accompanying children's book, illustrated by Hannah Lewis, which was on sale at the end of the performance. Little Pixie Productions, and their sister company Relative Pitch Opera, believe that there should be no obstacles to the enjoyment of experiencing quality live family theatre, and are dedicated to breaking down the barriers that can surround live theatre and opera by making accessible but without any loss of quality. It all augurs well for the Community Centre's family Christmas show from the same stable, "The Snow Queen".
