TWELVE beautiful girls are the focus of attention in a fairy tale being presented by young dancers at Felixstowe's seafront theatre.

The Marwyn School of Dance will be presenting its show The Twelve Dancing Princesses at the Spa Pavilion tomorrow and Saturday, April 27.

The show, which takes place at 7pm both nights, is about a king who has 12 delightful daughters, who sleep in the same room with the door locked.

However, each morning their shoes are found to be worn through – as if they have been dancing all night long.

This puzzles the king so much that he issues a challenge. If any man can discover the secret of where the princesses dance, then he may choose one as his wife. If he fails to find out after three days and three nights, he will be beheaded.

The show is an extravaganza of dance with a lovely story which has a twist in the tale to keep its audience enthralled.
