Cinderella: Sensory Friendly Performance
May 6, 2017
01:00 PM until 03:00 PM
Roxey Ballet will revive its full-length ballet,"Cinderella", for its "Classic Stories" concert.
One of the best-loved stories of all time comes to vibrant life through Mark Roxey's imaginative choreography and the lush score by Prokofiev. Enjoy the story of the stepsisters' comic antics, some fairy dust, a handsome prince, and an ill-treated servant girl who, against all odds, finds true love.
Sets, costumes, and lighting are masterfully combined in a visually stunning presentation of this favorite fairy tale. This production promises to be a shining example of the magic of dance at Roxey Ballet.
Roxey Ballet is proud to offer a relaxed, sensory-friendly performance for children and adults with ASD and other sensitivities or special needs.
