Milli is clever. She can take objects that have been forgotten or thrown away and transform them into amazing things. But the people in her village just aren’t interested, until one-day two strangers come into her shop. Jack and the Dancing Cat have no money to pay for new boots but in exchange they offer to give Milli dancing lessons, and with that there is no stopping her! This delightful, heart warming show based on the book by the much loved Stephen Michael King is a tap dancing, toe tapping feel good show for 3-8 year olds.
