balletLORENT - The Lost Happy Endings

An original story by Carol Ann Duffy retold as dance theatre for family.

What happens when the Happy Endings are stolen?

Deep in the forest lives Jub, a magical girl with six fingers on each hand. Her job is to guard the Happy Endings to stories and fairytales. But one day an otherworldly Witch steals them, and at bedtime the stories are destroyed...

Goldilocks changed the locks on the cottage of the three bears…Cinderella’s foot is now too big for the glass slipper…Little Red Riding Hood is gobbled up by the wolf…and Pinocchio’s nose never stops growing!

As the Witch disappears with the stolen Happy Endings it is up to Jub to save the night, encountering many beloved fairytale characters and woodland creatures in her quest...

Full of energy, emotion and visual magic this family show is the one to watch.

Original store composed by Murray Gold, with set design by Neil Murray and narrated by Joanna Lumley
