Ballet Shoes is set in London in the 1930s. It is a story of three orphans who strive to find their paths in life, while also saving their family from being broken apart through lack of money. Partly set in a stage school, it is a story about realising your ambitions, be they acting, dancing... or flying a plane!
This is a new family musical I am developing with the composer Lucy Simon (The Secret Garden / Dr Zhivago), inspired by the classic novel by Noel Streatfeild. I am writing the book and lyrics and Lucy Simon is writing the music.
