A heart-rending debut, a crowd-pleasing favorite and an iconic work are the highlights of Smuin Ballet's winter program XXtremes. For the first time ever in Northern California, the company will perform Jiri Kylian's acclaimed Return to a Strange Land, set to music by Czech composer Leos Janacek. Return expresses the journey from loss to hope with rare elegance and astonishing form. Brought back by popular demand, the company will also dance Dear Miss Cline, a buoyant and colorful romp through the music of Patsy Cline. Choreographed by the company's own Amy Seiwert, the piece features 10 Nashville tunes, including the immortal "Walkin' After Midnight." Finally, Smuin Ballet will pay tribute to its late, great founder Michael Smuin by performing his Carmina Burana. Set to the pulse-thumping cantata by Carl Orff, the choreography of Carmina Burana exemplifies the rhythm, speed and syncopation for which Smuin Ballet is beloved. Learn More

Peninsula Youth Theatre presents another side of the beloved story of the little wooden puppet that wants to become a real boy in Disney's My Son Pinocchio.
Disney's My Son Pinocchio tells the familiar story from Gepetto's point of view. As he tells the Blue Fairy, "I wished for my heart to be full, and you gave me a talking puppet." A puppet that doesn't follow rules, embarrasses him in front of the neighbors and has no interest in the family business -- in short, a puppet that behaves just like a real little boy!
Disney's My Son Pinocchio features music from Stephen Schwartz, the mastermind behind Wicked, Godspell and Pippin, as well as songs from the Disney animated classic including "When You Wish Upon a Star" and "I've Got No Strings."
The production is directed by Michael Champlin, with musical direction by Tony Gaitan and choreography by Katie O'Bryon.
