We as a company have performance opportunities that are available with the Northwest Michigan Ballet Theatre. The theatre gives us and you a great chance to expose the live ballet-theatre environment to theatre new comers, and theatre lovers of all ages. Our auditions for the Ballet Theatre are open to all intermediate and advanced level students ages 9-18. This non-profit company performs an annual full-length ballet production as well as holding an elementary school outreach-touring program.
One of our goals is for each of our talented students to feel comfortable and at home with us at all times. We want each student to have the choice to grow in whichever way they choose to, and be proud of their efforts and progress. Along with these goals, we want the students that decide to build a career to have a great foundation behind them, and for us to be a part of that foundation. If what we do as a company, team, and family is an interest to you or a passion of yours, we welcome you to come join us!
The Northwest Michigan Ballet Theatre will present A Midsummer Night’s Faery Tale on Saturday, February 3 at 2:00 and 7:00 pm at the Dennos Museum Center-Milliken Auditorium. The ballet is based on the children’s book of the same name by Wendy Froud and Terri Windling and was choreographed by artistic director Thomas Morrell.
The story takes place in the faery garden of the Old Oak Wood on the summer solstice and evolves around the small tree root faery, Sneezlewort. He tries to help prepare for the evening’s festivities, but only creates chaos. With the help of his friend Twig, they foil the attempt of an evil scorceress to steal the crown of the faery queen. The score for this original ballet production is a compilation of music by Andreas Vollenweider and Joanie Madden. It will truly be a memorable experience demonstrating the versatility and professionalism of this talented youth ballet company.
Reserved seating tickets are $20 for adults – $12 for students and seniors and are available through MyNorth Tickets.
