We’ve based our production of “The Red Shoes” on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen (the guy in the photo with the rather impressive top hat). If you follow this link you’ll find the original story from 1845 that we have used as a starting point. Have a read and see what you think. We would be really interested to hear what you think the story is about. What do you like about it? What don’t you like? We’d also be really interested to see which aspect of the story you’d choose to focus on if you were going to put it on stage like we are. Get commenting now! We go into the rehearsal room on Monday and it will be good to have as many ideas in the pot to help inspire the piece of theatre that we are going to create.
