'Cinderella'

N. ANDOVER, MA - New England Civic Ballet (NECB), a non-profit dance company, proudly presents Prokofiev’s “Cinderella Ballet”.

Open auditions were held in January and the cast includes dancers from multiple dance studios. They have been rehearsing every Sunday with directors Mrs. Phyllis George and Mrs. Roshni Pecora and are ready to perform a beautiful version of this familiar fairytale and classical ballet.

Performances will be held at the Rogers Center for the Performing Arts at Merrimack College on Sat., March 23, at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Tickets may be ordered online at www.newenglandcivicballet.org or call the studio (978-975-0289).

The ballet begins as Cinderella and her stepsisters receive an invite to the Prince’s ball where he hopes to choose a bride. She watches as her obnoxious stepsisters make preparations to go to this celebrated event, but she is not allowed to go. They leave for the ball in their “finest” and poor Cinderella is left in her rags at home. Her fairy godmother soon arrives and works her magic to ensure that Cinderella will be the belle of the ball. The celebration is joyous but of course at midnight, Cinderella runs out of the ball leaving behind a slipper which the heartbroken prince uses to find her.

We all know how the story ends so come and see the dancers perform this timeless tale through dance and emotions. You won’t be disappointed. The costumes, scenery, choreography and talented dancers from all over the area promise to make this a memorable production.

For more information regarding the ballet, performances, and other information, contact the director, Mrs. Phyllis George, at the New England Civic Ballet school studios 978-975-0289.
