Dogs Don't Do Ballet

A Little Angel Theatre Production

Biff is not like ordinary dogs. He likes moonlight. And music. And walking on his tiptoes.
You see, Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog, Biff thinks he’s a ballerina...
The sublime and the ridiculous combine in this hilarious story of a small dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams, brought to life using beautiful puppets, well-loved ballet music and dazzling comedy.

If you only take your children to one show make sure that it is ‘Dogs Don’t Do Ballet’.....the production is enchanting, hilarious, expertly performed and suitable for all ages.

Productions at the Little Angel Theatre are always a delight, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard so much children’s laughter ringing out around the converted chapel as at Dog’s Don’t Do Ballet...
