Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

If you weren't there, then you missed your chance - it was a one weekend performance only!
Check back in December for Ballet Petit's winter performance...the Nutcracker, perhaps?
Best for friends & families of the students, but also for anyone...continued

Description

Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center will present a double bill at the historic Alex Theatre: “Johnnie Appleseed” and “Cinderella.”

The world premiere of “Johnnie Appleseed,” written and directed by Tracy Vonder Haar, will be performed by the Tap Company and the Senior, Junior and Ballet Companies in residence at the Performing Arts Center. The cast will be rounded out by students from the tap, jazz and hip-hop departments. This adorable, toe-tapping tale of John Chapman — or, in this case the female “Johnnie” — is sure to please audiences of all ages. Additional choreography is by Sven Toorvald, Katrina Jade, Logan Hutt, Shaun Curtin, Paul Romero, Chelsea Michener and Jenn Aedo.

Next on the bill will be a fresh retelling of “Cinderella,” combining some of the best elements of the traditional Cinderella stories from around the world into one ballet. This two-act version, performed by students of Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center, features Adam DiLoreto as the Prince, Logan Hutt as the Stepmother, and Senior Company members in the female leading roles. Under the direction of Tracy Vonder Haar and Logan Hutt, there is exciting new and original choreography by Sven Toorvald, Katrina Jade, Jerry Kokich, Shaun Curtin, Rowena Lopez-Dominguez, and Thais Leavitt.
