Angelina's Star Performance will feature a cast of eight dancers from the English National Ballet. They will do some 100 performances, over 12 weeks across 20 venues throughout the UK.
Based on the classic book Angelina at the Palace, written by Katherine Holabird, Angelina's Star Performance follows the character as she prepares to stage her own performance of The Sleeping Beauty at the request of the king and queen. There is even a real life Princess - Princess Valentine - to star alongside her in the show.
The show will be a special introduction to ballet for children from the age of three upwards. The tour will be complemented by an education programme designed to give children the opportunity to experience ballet. The performances will also feature fun activities and workshops in the venues, including the chance to take part in Angelina Ballerina Dance Academy classes.
"We are thrilled to be working with English National Ballet in bringing Angelina to life through her very own stage show," said Katie Rollings, VP consumer products and international marketing at Hit. "Angelina's Star Performance has a cast and crew that is world class and we hope that through Angelina Ballerina, dance and the arts will be more accessible to children around the country."
The show will premiere at the New Wimbledon Theatre on September 6th and will then visit a further 20 regional venues.
