One of the most magical ballets of all, Swan Lake, is being performed in miniature by two professional ballet dancers in a co-production by Living Spit and Theatre Orchard.

Performances will be held at Theatre Shop in Queens Square, Clevedon, later this month.

The show is described as the smallest ballet ever performed (probably), especially for Children's Theatre Shop.

Writers Howard Coggins and Stu Mcloughlin will be joined on stage by two real-live ballet dancers in what promises to be one of the funniest, danciest, water-fowlest, micro-ballets the world has ever seen.

The dynamic duo, Francisca Mendo and Josh Hutchby, promise to leave their tutus at home, but promises are made to be broken.

Francisca, who is from Portugal, started dancing at the age of three and is trained in classical ballet and jazz and has performed in multiple leading roles with performances in the UK, Portugal and Abu Dhabi. She is also a teacher and choreographer at the London Dance Company.

Josh, from Manchester, has studied for an MA in dance performance and his professional career has included performances in Chile with Wired Aerial Theatre to perform As The World Tipped and also performing dance, aerial and stunts in the opera production of Carman in Bregenz.

The production will be staged from December 21-24 and December 28-30 at 2.30pm and 7pm with only one performance at 2.30pm on Christmas Eve.

Tickets, priced £10-12, and £30 for a family ticket, are available at or on 03336 663366.
