This spring, Brandywine Ballet undertakes an exciting new, full-length ballet: Nancy Page’s Beauty and the Beast.
Page has masterfully adapted the timeless fairy tale for the ballet stage. Brandywine Ballet encourages audiences to join Belle as her story unfolds in a wonderfully spirited tale of adventure, friendship, romance, and the importance of finding inner-beauty.
Based in West Chester, the company presents the new production of Beauty and the Beast, April 27, at 10am, April 28, 4pm, and April 29, at 2pm at the Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall. Located at 700 S. High St., West Chester, PA 19383. Tickets are $25, $30 and $40. Group, Senior, and University discounts apply. To purchase tickets, visit www.brandywineballet.com or call 618.696.2711.
The Brandywine Ballet is also hosting Be Our Guest, a unique meet-the-cast event. Children of all ages meet and interact with Belle, the Beast, and many other cast members including the townsfolk, forest animals, dancing teapot, dancing clock, feather dusters, and many more. Take advantage of the sweet snacks and fare on Sunday, April 29, at 4 pm in the Philips Memorial Library (upstairs from Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall). Admission to Be Our Guest is $18., and a separate ticket is required.
