The Magic Word
In a secret, magical forest lives the beautiful Forest Queen. In the summer the forest is warm and the Queen loves dancing in the dappled sunlight. But in the winter she becomes cold and hungry. One day she decides to visit the Forest Elf on the other side of the wood, as she knows he has food and a warm cloak. But the Queen is rather spoilt and does not know how to ask nicely. Once she learns The Magic Word she discovers the beauty of sharing and the joys of true friendship.

'We thought the performance was delightful and our 4 very young persons much enjoyed it. The story was easy to follow, the varied music went down well and the message was very proper. At least one of our team (aged 3) will be dancing all the more enthusiastically at her next lesson. And well done the two performers. Please keep us informed of similar performances' – Jonathan Chalton
