The world premiere production of best-selling author Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather comes to Cambridge Arts Theatre from June 3-8.

Award-winning script writer Emma Reeves (CBBC’s The Story of Tracy Beaker) has collaborated with Olivier Award nominated director Sally Cookson (Peter Pan, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and Stick Man) to adapt this critically acclaimed novel to the stage.

Roll up and join Hetty on her escape from the Foundling Hospital, tremble as she faces Matron Stinking Bottomly and thrill as she discovers the squirrel house and Tanglefields Travelling Circus.

Gasp as she endures a night locked in the attic, quake as she braves the scary streets of Victorian London and cheer as she overcomes all in her search to find her real mother and a true family of her own.

Jacqueline Wilson, former Children’s Laureate, has written more than 100 books and has won numerous awards and accolades. Selling more than 30 million copies of her books, Wilson is one of Britain’s most loved authors whose novels have been adapted into popular TV series for ITV and the BBC.

Performances are at 7pm on June 3, 10.30am on June 5, 1.30pm and 7pm on June 6, 3pm and 7pm on June 7 and 5.30pm on June 8.

Tickets are Adults £20/Children £15 and are subject to a £2.50 booking fee. They are available from www.cambridgeartstheatre.com or from the box office on 01223 503333
