A colorful children’s ballet
Don’t miss the Springfield Youth Performance Group’s production of Alice in Wonderland on Saturday, June 9 at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. The engaging and energetic ballet will feature new choreography by SYPG artistic director Caitlin Helton Scherer plus more than 55 local, young performers. “Alice in Wonderland is an ideal production to appeal to all ages,” according to Scherer. “Younger kids will love all of the colorful characters and costumes, while older children and adults can really appreciate the subtlety of the storyline and the artistry of the performers.” Additionally, guests who arrive 45 minutes prior to the start of the scheduled performance time will be treated to a complimentary “Wonderland Preshow Party” featuring activities, crafts and meet-and-greet sessions with the show’s characters. Tickets to Alice in Wonderland cost $15 for adults and $10 for children ages 12 and under. Advance tickets may be purchased online at http://hcfta.org or via phone at 523-2787.
