Cinderella

Union County Arts Center, Rahway, NJ

Sunday, March 8, 2020 at 2pm

This one-hour, Sensory Friendly performance is specially designed and adapted for children with autism and other sensory sensitivities. Made possible by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, as part of the UC Sensory Friendly Theatre series, in association with New Jersey Ballet.

 

One of New Jersey Ballet’s most popular productions for children, Cinderella is a two-act romp through the well-known fairy tale in which a girl loses a dancing slipper and finds happily ever after with a prince. See the hours of the clock come to life and dance, a Fairy Godmother and beautiful Fairies of the Four seasons in the enchanted garden, and the pumpkin which turns into a coach before your very eyes! Splendid sets and costumes, glorious dancing, New Jersey Ballet’s hallmark “Storyteller” narration makes sure even the littlest theater-goers can keep up with ease.

New Jersey Ballet premiered Don Quixote 2011, and it had made it to the Star-Ledger’s prestigious Top Ten dance events of the year. Don Quixote is rich in Spanish color, flavor, and the laugh-out-loud humor of Cervantes’ masterpiece about an old knight, his squire, and their foray into the age of chivalry. The company chose Don Quixote because “It is a joyous ballet with outstanding choreography by Gorsky; a delightful spectacle popular with audiences,” said New Jersey Ballet Director Carolyn Clark. “It’s also a wonderful opportunity for the company to present another full-length ballet available to the people of New Jersey.”

Hansel & Gretel

This two-act ballet is a lively re-telling of the well-known fairytale about a brother and sister who wander into a forest where they are captured by a witch in a fantastic gingerbread house. In a classic good-triumphs-over-evil plot, the spunky youngsters defeat the witch, free other children she had baked into gingerbread, and are reunited with their loving parents in the happily-ever-after finale. The ballet incorporates the beautiful music of Engelbert Humperdinck, including his “Fourteen Angels” bedtime prayer and features New Jersey Ballet’s original “storyteller” narration so even the littlest theatergoer can keep up with ease.
