The Final Countdown!

Published on Friday 19 October, 2012

I am going quackers with excitement! It's the premiere of Ugly Duckling tomorrow and I am looking forward to it so much I think I might pop!

The scenery and costumes are waiting to be packed into the van and taken to Yeadon Town Hall first thing tomorrow morning and the programmes are currently winging their way back from the printers so we are almost ready to go.

My friend, Ugly, who is performing in the ballet has been working really hard this week to make sure everything is perfect for the first performance. The final rehearsals were yesterday and from what I heard they went very well indeed. Now Ugly tends to get very nervous when performing so my job this afternoon is to try and keep her calm and make sure she doesn’t get in a flap about it. 

If you are going to see the ballet this weekend Ugly would love to hear what you thought of it afterwards, and if you have any suggestions for other stories that you would like to see turned into a ballet in the future please tell us.

I’ve got my ticket and am ready to go, so let the show begin!
