The best children's theatre for May half-term 2017

Dogs Don't Do Ballet

This puppet show has solid toddler appeal, from its adorable cast of wooden marionettes right down to its repertoire of zany sound effects. A lumpen mutt decides he's a born ballerina, but the rest of the class think his moves are anything but en pointe. Ages two to seven.

Horrible Histories - The Best Of Barmy Britain

School's out but there's still time for a history lesson courtesy of this riotous outdoor show. As fans of the telly show will know, there are songs, (mercifully fake) dead rats and gore galore. Will kids actually learn anything? Who cares when they're having this much fun. Ages six-plus.

Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

This likeable new show at Islington’s backstreet puppet theatre the Little Angel offers a new spin on the classic fairytale.
