Here’s our first review for The Red Shoes! Enough to put us in a good mood in the post show slump!
We didn’t have a programme for The Red Shoes – with one thing and another getting the show together this was one thing that passed us by! However, a couple of people wanted to know more about the cast so here you are!
norfox Young People’s Theatre were founded in April 2007 with the aim of supporting young actors to develop their craft within a professional theatre environment. “The Red Shoes” is the company’s fifth show and was created during three very busy weeks in August 2009.
The company are based at The Library Theatre Company in Manchester and are kindly funded by norfox, a regional charity backed by North West property companies.
