HETTY FEATHER LVE Children’s Theatre in Dubai
HETTY FEATHER LIVE Children’s Theatre in Dubai: We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed bringing the smash-hit West End stage show, Hetty Feather, to the UAE in May 2014. It was a fantastic way to begin our celebrations as we enter out 10th year as the regions’ leading educational theatre promoter.
As part of the show’s extra-curricular activities, we also organised our Young Writer’s Competition – which we opened to taleneted young writers all over the UAE aged between seven to 12. The shortlists stories were then judged by Jacqueline Wilson herself. If you aren’t familiar with the tale of Hetty Feather, but think you’d like to see it in London this year, then please read on for more information.
One of the best-loved fictional characters known to children today, Hetty Feather brings Victorian history and drama to life. Jacqueline Wilson is one of today’s most successful children’s authors and has been praised for her work in bringing a love of literary fiction and history back to today’s young readers.
Adapted for the stage by Emma Reeves in association with Kenny Wax Productions, audiences will be transported back to Victorian London – to where foundling Hetty struggles to discover the secrets of her past and with the strict disciplinary regimes imposed by Matron Stinking Bottomly – the Foundling Hospital’s terrifying directress.
Determined to discover who her mother is – and miserable at the orphan home, Hetty decides to run away on the busiest and most important even of London’s social calender…. Queen Victoria’s Jubilee… To find out more about Hetty, watch our video introduction to her story by Jacqueline Wilson here:
