TALK

Vienna Festival Ballet

CINDERELLA

AN EVENING OF MEDIUMSHIP WITH TONY STOCKWELL

A mistreated young girl, a glass slipper, two comical ugly stepsisters and a handsome prince combine to make the perfect piece of story-telling.

The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a long-established credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums.

Vienna Festival Ballet’s production of Cinderella is a ballet that will surely touch and reach out to everyone’s heart, with its combination of pure classical dancing and a touch of pantomime.

Tony will demonstrate his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.

The music contains a collection of Rossini’s most famous operatic achievements and has been especially arranged for Vienna Festival Ballet.   Friday 5th May  7.30pm   Martlets Hall   Reserved Theatre Seating www.martletshall.org | 01444 242888 4

DOGS DON’T DO BALLET The very funny tale of a small dog with big dreams for ages 3yrs+! Biff is not like other dogs. He doesn’t do dog stuff like weeing on lampposts, or scratching his fleas…No, Biff likes moonlight and music and walking on his tiptoes. You see, Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog. He thinks he’s a ballerina. Based on the bestselling childrens’ book by Ana Kemp and Sara Ogilvie, this fabulous feel-good show features music, songs, handcrafted puppets and Biff, the ballet-dancing dog!

The band features everything from New Orleans to blues to late 20’s Ellington, played with extraordinary panache and skill. You’ll hear songs from that age and Chris’s favourites like Bourbon Street Parade, Jubilee Stomp, and Ice Cream.   Friday 9 th June  7.30pm   Clair Hall   Reserved Theatre Style
