Springfield Ballet Company presents a new, original production, Faerie Tale, sponsored by Body Perfect and supported by Dance Arts Studio, Luers and Solomon Colors. Set to the music of Felix Mendhelssohn and Pytor Tchaikovsky, two matinee productions will be performed at Sangamon Auditorium at 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2, 2017.

Tickets are $30 for adults, $28 for seniors, and $18 for students and children. Purchase tickets by calling the Sangamon Auditorium ticket office at (217) 206-6160 or online at www.uis.edu/sangamonauditorium/tickets. Group discounts are available when purchasing 10 or more tickets. A free preshow party and photo opportunity with key characters will also take place each day.

The story of Faerie Tale involves storybook characters, Snow White, Cinderella and their Princes traveling through the woods and finding themselves amid a fairy preparation for the wedding of Oberon and Titania, King and Queen of the fairies. Among these unlikely groups flies Puck, armed only with a wicked sense of humor and a love potion capable of making anyone fall for the first person they set eyes upon. What could possibly go wrong?

This exciting, original production will feature gorgeous custom-made costumes, beautiful scenery and all new choreography set to the enchanting music of Mendhelssohn and Tchaikovsky. “We are so excited to perform this new ballet. The story is funny and light with a romantic theme, sure to please all audiences,” said SBC Artistic Director Julie Ratz. 

The Springfield Ballet Company is a civic, not-for- profit ballet company that has been

entertaining and educating area audiences since 1975 and is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency. The company offers three major productions at the University of Illinois at Springfield’s Sangamon Auditorium each year, and also performs at festivals, schools and nursing homes throughout central Illinois. SBC is committed to providing equitable opportunities for company dancers to be trained in and to perform the art of dance, and to offer opportunities for all members of the central Illinois community to be educated and entertained.
