“Some of the kids have been working on the dances for the show since this summer when we held auditions for principle role. They have put in a lot of extra practices and their excitement about getting to be such key characters in this classic story is palatable,” Ballew said. “We’ve even laughed and said how fun it’ll be when they can bring their own children to the show one day and say. 'I was in the very first one!' It’s such an honor to give kids traditions like this that they can look back on years from now and remember being part of!”
Choreographers for “Claire & The Land of Sweets" are Jennifer Ballew, Kelly Musil, Victoria Gallina and Carrie McComas.
