The 2017 holiday performance will be followed up with a 20th Anniversary Gala Fundraiser Celebration. The holiday performance at Newport’s Casino Theatre will feature the signature storybook ballet, “Madeline”, as well as “Nutcracker” variations. As a training company the focus remains on the stage performance of the young dancers, in a professional setting.
Artistic Director Nancy McAuliffe is amazed at how quickly the time has passed since the launch of Rhode Island’s ballet theatre. “Time has certainly flown, but I’m proud that RIbt has been able to provide the stage performance training and professional settings for young dancers for all these years. I’m very much looking forward to seeing some of the alumni back at the evening Celebration.”
The evening Gala Fundraiser Celebration will follow the Sunday afternoon matinee, with box office ticket options for the Show performance and/or the Gala event. The Box Office will be active for ticket sales starting on 1 November. Tickets are available to the general public as well as the families, friends and former dancers.
