Little ones are sure to love Northern Ballet’s Goldilocks & the Three Bears.
The classic story is the latest offering in the Company’s award-winning Short Ballets for Small People series. It follows the hugely successful tours of Ugly Duckling, Three Little Pigs, Elves & the Shoemaker and Tortoise & the Hare – all of which have been adapted for television by CBeebies.

Northern Ballet’s latest family-friendly production is a sunny, sporty, springtime delight.
The Company’s take on Aesop’s beloved fable Tortoise & the Hare adds to their growing repertoire of short story ballets carefully concocted with younger audience members in mind. Previous successes Ugly Duckling, Three Little Pigs and Elves & the Shoemaker captivated theatregoers nationwide and were made into popular television adaptations so my expectations are high for Tortoise & the Hare – currently on tour – and Goldilocks & the Three Bears – recently announced as the fifth show in the series.
Fortunately, Tortoise & the Hare has also been filmed for the small screen and it made its television début on CBeebies this morning. Unsurprisingly, it proved to be the perfect Easter Monday pick-me-up…
