All children, except one, grow up ... but there's a bit of him in each of us. Perhaps that's why we hold his story so dear. Lafayette Ballet Theatre is delighted to announce its next spring production, "Peter Pan," as never before experienced in Louisiana. This full-length ballet in two acts promises to please grown ups and children of every age - complete with humor, suspense and adventure, along with all the romance of classical dance. Tickets on sale now!
This spectacular show - slated for Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10, at the Heymann Performing Arts Center - will feature the acclaimed choreography of the New Orleans-born Washington Ballet artistic director Septime Webre and guest artists from the Cincinnati Ballet. This is the first time a work of Webre, one of the nation's most sought-after choreographers, will ever be presented in his home state. Setting the choreography on the local cast will be Cincinnati Ballet's ballet mistress, Johanna Wilt. Another plus: trust and a little pixie dust - with help from America's best aerial effects company, Flying by Foy - will send the stars soaring beyond the crowd's greatest expectations.
Tickets are available at the Heymann Center Box Office Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (337-291-5555) and through all Ticket Master outlets including online at www.ticketmaster.com . Prices are as follows: front orchestra, $50; back orchestra, $42.50; first balcony, $37.50; back orchestra, $20. Additional Ticket Master fees may apply. Special group rates are available. College and high school students are eligible for the "student rush" special: half off on all seats still available 30 minutes prior to curtain. (Students must present a current school ID at the Heymann Center Box Office to receive the "student rush" discount.)
