New Bedford Ballet Performs

Adventures in Dance 

New Bedford Ballet will culminate its summer season with four performances of Adventures in Dance, an innovative blend of classical and contemporary choreography.  This creative exploration of dance styles will be performed on Friday, August 8, at 5:30 and 7:00 pm and Saturday, August 9, at 2:00 and 3:30pm, at the NBB Community Theatre, 2343 Purchase St. New Bedford.  

Raggedy Ann and Andy’s Midnight Adventure is an original children’s ballet created by New Bedford Ballet’s artistic director Rebecca Waskiel-Marchesseault, with choreography by Ms. Waskiel-Marchesseault, James Brown and Lauren Knightly.  Inspired by the world’s best-known and most adored rag dolls, this colorful, humorous production will entertain audience members of all ages as dolls literally come to life and create some nighttime mischief.

This performance adventure also premieres original contemporary choreography by New Bedford Ballet advanced students and classical and contemporary dance pieces choreographed by NBB instructors James Brown and Erin Petitjean Allen. 

Tickets are $10.00 for Adults and $5.00 for Seniors, Students and Children. All proceeds from this performance will support the New Bedford Ballet, a non-profit organization.  Tickets are limited and sell quickly, so reserve your tickets soon by contacting the New Bedford Ballet at 508-993-1387.
