Eastern Connecticut Ballet presents Ballet Spooktacular
For children who just can’t wait for Halloween, Eastern Connecticut Ballet’s Spooktacular serves up a mix of “BOO-tiful” dancing, clever costumes, and a chance for young audiences to be a part of the fun.
Offering treats both on and off the stage, the Spooktacular performance combines bewitching ballet, classical music, and special effects.
Returning to the stage will be the haunting “Halloween Waltz” and “The Sorcerer's Apprentice,” the tale of a novice wizard with a malfunctioning magic wand. The giggle inducing crowd favorite “Dancing Bones” will feature life-size, glow-in-the-dark skeletons. No need to fear as the phantasms are fascinating, not frightening. This 35-minute friendly spirited performance is just right for families of all ages.
Audience members beware: ECB's Ballet Spooktacular of years past have been a sell-out, and tickets are likely to perform a disappearing act once again.
