Little Lord Fauntleroy

Each year London Children’s Ballet gives four months of free ballet training to children from all backgrounds and brings new versions of classic stories to the stage to ‘open windows’ for the next generation. Their latest production, Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is the tale of a poor American boy who discovers he is heir to an English fortune and has to charm his fearsome grandfather.

‘If you give people ballet in the right dosage and in a format they understand it will engage them. We hope that children will then grow up to enjoy ballet. We are committed to bringing new writing to the next generation.’

Read the full feature in the Evening Standard 14 April.

Little Lord Fauntleroy is at the Peacock Theatre, April 21-24 2016.
