Saturday and Sunday To-Do: 'Peter Pan: A Storybook Ballet'

Posted By on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 2:22 PM

‘PETER PAN: A STORYBOOK BALLET'
2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Arkansas Arts Center. $15-$25.

As fairy tales go, it's hard to think of one that lends itself to a ballet adaptation more than “Peter Pan.” You've got flying, fairies and all sorts of swordplay, all of which add enough of a veneer of action to pas de deux, pirouettes and all the other French terms for moves you've never heard of to keep the kids engaged. And, of course, in this Arkansas Festival Ballet production, there'll be plenty of young folks among the cast of more than 90, many of whom will literally soar through air. AFB artistic director Rebecca Miller Stalcup provides the original choreography. There are three public performances, two on Saturday, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets, in advance, are $15 for students and children and $20 for adults; add $5 for each group at the door.
