On Monday, youngsters can enjoy watching ballet when Let’s All Dance Productions puts on Princess and the Frog.

It will be showing at the Quay Theatre in Sudbury from 3pm.

With an original score and a range of costumes, the show tells the classic tale in ballet form, making the age-old dance form accessible to the younger generation.

Tickets cost £8 for adults and £7 for children and are available from the box office on 01787 374745.

Later in the week the Quay Theatre will hold a puppet workshop run by Theatrerotto.

It will be held in The Jetty in Quay Lane, Sudbury, and will give children the chance to make their own animal character puppet, with family members welcome too.

Tickets are £6, with accompanying adults going free. The workshop will take place on Saturday, February 17 at 1pm. Following the workshop will be the Forest of Fables Show, which will feature some of the puppets made in the earlier workshop.

Aesop’s Fables are brought to life in the show, for which tickets cost £8.

The show starts at 3pm. To book, call the Box Office on 01787 374745.
