Fairytales do come true....
Coastal Youth Ballet Theatre is delighted to announce the staging of the full length ballet production of “Cinderella” with three performances slated on March 16th and 17th and a special student matinee performance for area schools on Monday, March 18th at the Beach Church Auditorium, on George Bishop Parkway, Myrtle Beach.
A delightful blend of storytelling, humor and all the splendor one would expect from a ballet production. With a touch of magic from her fairy godmother, Cinderella beats her hilariously wicked stepsisters to win the heart of her charming prince. This production draws greatly upon English pantomime with comedic touches, particularly in the character development of the stepfamily, which will delight audiences.
Choreographed and staged by Coastal Youth Ballet Theatre’s artistic team of Liza and Karen Mata, “Cinderella” is a ballet in three acts and features the music composed by the Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev, who also wrote the music for the ballet “Romeo and Juliet” and “Peter and the Wolf.”
Complete with beautiful scenery and costumes, and performances by the performing company’s finest and talented ballet dancers led by Kiely Clark and Jenny Rogers, who will alternate as “Cinderella.” Hannah Osborne and Madison Lapham are featured as the wicked stepsisters and guest artist Kirk Henning (formerly with Richmond Ballet and Suzanne Farrell Ballet Company), is performing as the Prince. Young dancers as well as teen and adult students from the ballet classes of Coastal Dance Centre, Coastal Youth Ballet Theatre’s official dance school will also take to the stage to complete the cast.
This romantic storybook ballet production promises to be a special treat for the whole family and will make audiences believe in “happily ever after!”
