LAURA has always wanted someone special to share her secrets with, and then one night she finds a star lying, broken, on the pavement.

Carefully, she picks the little star up and takes it home.

As it glows warmly in her hand, she knows that she will be able to tell it all her secrets...but when she wakes up next morning, the little star has disappeared.

Was her special friend just a dream?

In this magical story a lonely girl learns that friendship sometimes means letting of your most precious treasures...

Bringing the much loved children’s book to the stage on Saturday is down to the acclaimed Pied Piper 

Laura’s Star is the perfect entertainment for little mites aged between three and seven years old, and it comes with the associated colour that little folks like to see, and hear – live music and puppetry both take roles.

Pied Piper know their craft well enough though. They have been awakening imaginations of young people for a quarter of a century.

They have a firm relationship with Stantonbury Campus too, and earlier productions like The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse have also shown to acclaim over the years on the new city stage.

So far as this twinkly delight goes, tickets will set you back £7 (falling to £5.50 for concessions) and show time is 7.30pm,

If you are taking the brood entire, a family ticket allows entry to four and will set you back twenty quid.]

>Ballet Theatre UK tiptoe in a couple of days later, with their new production of the light-footed Cinderella.

Ballet doesn’t come much more classic than this.

The story of the spiteful step sisters making Cinders’ life a misery is well known, and we don’t feel the need to go over it again in the here and now (and least of all when we have got our panto round-up taking over this page next week).

But we will tell you that it comes with a plentiful supply of sumptuous comstumes and sets which perfectly aid the telling of fairytale, set to Prokofiev’s delightful score.

Call the box office to book in for either event, on MK 280800.
