Peter Pan: The Ballet at Akron Civic Theatre
Peter Pan is a beloved classic story that kids and adults both adore. This performance is the perfect opportunity to introduce your children to live ballet as they are very welcomed and it is a familiar story that they will enjoy. Your children will be amazed at the talent and costumes of other kids in the show. In fact, they will probably even want to get autographs afterward so keep your program and a pen handy.
Peter Pan is the feature performance however, it will open with Symphonic NANsense, a ballet choreographed by Tom Gold. This is a beautiful celebration and tribute of the Ballet Excel Ohio’s founding artistic director Nan Klinger.
This colorful ballet piece consists of 7 short pieces, check out the video below from a previous performance for a taste of what you can expect. It is choreographed by Tom Gold and set to the familiar music of Leroy Anderson,
Peter Pan (feature performance): The Ballet is the retelling of Sir James Barrie’s classic play about Peter Pan. This ballet is directed by choreographer Laszlo Berdo. If your child has never attended a ballet before, it is a good idea to talk to them about how a live performance woks – like being quiet to not disturb the performers. It is also a good idea to retell the story of Peter Pan ahead of time so that they can more easily follow the story line.
The costumes look fantastic, adding to the excitement that families will enjoy with this original works for children, by children performance. I personally love that Ballet Excel Ohio provides young students the ability to dance and bring the artistry of a classical art form to our community for everyone! Even if families don’t have the ability to pay, their children can still work with Ballet Excel Ohio. What an amazing organization to support.
This performance will get everyone excited and evolved with clapping of your hands and thinking happy thoughts to propel the performance. Be sure to arrive about 1/2 hour early to find your seats, explore the beautiful Akron Civic Theatre and grab a snack before the performance.
