Cinderella in Hollywood is the latest production from English Youth Ballet and the show sees young local dancers take to the stage with professional performers.

Janet Lewis, English Youth Ballet director, said: “My idea to set Cinderella in Hollywood came from my love of the glamour of the screen stars from the black and white era. Cinderella dreams of becoming a movie star – just like her late mother. She doesn’t know she will fall in love with a prince. The story of the ballet was inspired by the marriage of Prince Rainier of Monaco to the actress Grace Kelly and more recently we have Prince Harry and Meghan Markle too.”

She added: “2018 is English Youth Ballet’s 20th Anniversary Year. What better way to celebrate than with a new production for the company.”

Cinderella in Hollywood is at Norwich Theatre Royal tonight at 7.30pm and tomorrow at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets £10-£23.50.
