RIbt is collaborating this fall with Island Moving Company (IMC) in the production of Alice in Wonderland. This children’s ballet was originally created by Nancy McAuliffe and has been in the RIbt repertoire for many years. The classic story of Alice In Wonderland has a music score by Dimitri Shostakovich and, in addition to Nancy’s original choreography, has new dances created by Miki Ohlsen and Danielle Genest. It is also the first dance production in the Newport Congregational Church, which has been renovated as a new arts performance space in Newport.
Performance dates and times for Alice in Wonderland are October 17-18 at 4:30pm, October 19 at 3:00pm and October 20 at 1:00pm and 3:00pm. The performances are intended for children 3 and up and run one hour with no intermission. All tickets are $30. The Newport Congregational Church is at 73 Pelham Street in Newport.
This will take the place of the our usual holiday performance in the Casino Theatre. RIbt dancers will also be performing in IMC’s Nutcracker at Rosecliff in Newport. These are wonderful performance opportunities for our young dancers.
