Angelina and her friends, Alice, Gracie, AZ, Viki, and even their teacher Ms. Mimi, are all aflutter because a special guest is coming to visit Camembert Academy. Angelina and her friends will perform all types of dance, including hip-hop, modern dance, the Irish jig, and of course, ballet. Based on the critically acclaimed books by Katharine Holabird and Helen Craig and the PBS KIDS® animated series, Angelina Ballerina, The Musical, is produced by the Vital Theatre Company, and recommended for ages 6 – 10.
One hour before each performance, there will be a pre-show activity presented by Ballet Etudes Company. In conjunction with the Family Festivities Series, the Playhouse is hosting a book collection for Read to Grow, Inc., a statewide nonprofit organization that helps parents take an active role in their children's literacy development by providing free children's books to families with limited access and to community resources that serve them. At each Family Festivities performance, bins will be located in the Playhouse lobby for donations of gently used and new children’s books which will be given to families and programs in the greater Fairfield County area through Read to Grow.
Tickets are $18 (everyone in the audience requires a ticket): 203-227-4177, 1-888-927-7529; www.westportplayhouse.org.
