National Theatre to present new stage adaptation of Ballet Shoes this Christmas

The National Theatre has announced the first major stage adaptation of Noel Streatfeild’s much-loved, best-selling book Ballet Shoes, playing in London this Christmas 2024.

Adapted by Kendall Feaver (The Almighty Sometimes), Ballet Shoes will run in the Olivier theatre from 23 November 2024, directed by Katy Rudd (The Ocean at the End of the Lane).

Joining Katy Rudd in the creative team will be set design by Frankie Bradshaw, costume design by Samuel Wyer, choreography by Ellen Kane, composition by Asaf Zohar, lighting design by Paule Constable, sound design by Ian Dickinson and casting by Bryony Jarvis-Taylor.

Director of the National Theatre Rufus Norris said in a statement: “After the success of The Witches last Christmas, I am thrilled the National Theatre will stage Noel Streatfeild’s novel Ballet Shoes, with Kendall Feaver’s adaptation injecting new energy and life into the beloved story. Combined with Katy Rudd’s theatrical vision, developed with the National Theatre’s exceptional New Work Department, I couldn’t be more excited for audiences to experience this classic story as an ambitious new theatre event.”

Casting is to be announced.

Last Christmas the National Theatre produced a big-budget new stage adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Wicthes. The show is widely tipped to be transferring into the West End, although it is unclear whether this would be for Christmas 2024.

Ballet Shoes will play in the Olivier theatre of the National Theatre from 23 November 2024 to 1 February 2025.
