First Steps: A Child's The Dream will give youngsters a chance to experience theatre, maybe for the first time, with a very special performance designed to introduce children to ballet and live performance.

The one-off Birmingham Royal Ballet show takes place in half term at 1pm on Friday February 19 at Birmingham Hippodrome and is one-hour long with interactive sections designed to keep the interest of children aged between three and seven.

An on-stage storyteller will also introduce families to the characters and story in the production of The Dream, a one-act ballet by Sir Frederick Ashton based on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
