SAVE THE DATE:  THE STORIES OF PETER RABBIT AND FRIENDS AS PERFORMED BY DANCE WISCONSIN

SUNDAY MARCH 11, 2018 - MITBY THEATER MADISON - TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

The Stories of Peter Rabbit and Friends will introduce the audience to four different stories of Beatrix Potter in three acts: Tale of Two Bad Mice, Tom Kitten, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. This ballet is perfect for the elementary aged child (4-12).  Find out what happens when two mice, Lucinda and Jane, get loose in the beautiful doll house of Winefred and are disappointed to find the table full of food is made of porcelain.  Then watch the antics of Tom Kitten and his sisters Moppet and Mittens who get into mischief while waiting for fine company to arrive.  Finally in the third act enjoy the rambunctious Peter Rabbit as he gets loose in the live garden of Mr. McGreoger.  While being chased Peter loses his clothes and must return to find them with the assistance of his cousin Benjamin Bunny.  Benjamin lallygags in the garden much to Peter's dismay and then they encounter a cat.  Hiding under a basket for safety they become trapped and must be saved by Benjamin's father.  New choreography, costumes and characters enhance this repertoire of Dance Wisconsin.  Original music composed by former Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra Conductor David Lewis Crosby (1957-2008)


HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS MADE THIS SUCH A WONDERFUL YEAR FROM OUR COMPANY DANCERS AND FAMILIES, TO OUR PRODUCTION PARTICIPATES FROM STUDIOS ALL OVER SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL WISOCNSIN AND OUR PATRONS!

 

 

 

Thank you to our amazing patrons that attended our New Works performance Portraits of Strenth - Empowering Women last Saturday evening the 7th of October.  We had to share this photo sent to us via Facebook by a patron.

Thank you as well to the incredible staff at the Mitby Theater.

We believe our New Work performances are one of the best kept secrets in Madison.  Help us end this fact and tell friends and family alike about our performance next year.  Save the dates of October 6th and 13th for 2018!  Your word of mouth is our very best advertisement.  Thank you again!
