COARSEGOLD – The widely anticipated local production of the third in a series known as the Fairy Garden Ballet is coming to the stage at Rivergold school, starring 33 local dancers.
This marks the premiere of Fairy Garden Ballet: Inspire, a show which is written, choreographed and produced by Community Dance and Theater in Coarsegold.
“Audience goers will enjoy a beautiful story line, wonderful costumes and magical choreography,” says Teena Hagerman, director of Community Dance and Theater. “This is the third Fairy Garden Ballet to grace the stages of our mountain community,” she explains.
The presentation follows the story of what happens when the Winter Fairy ignores Mother Nature’s rules. The first program debuted in 2005 at the Golden Chain Theater. The second show, Believe, opened in 2006 at Yosemite High School.
Now, the contemporary opening of the Fairy Garden Ballet: Inspire will take place on the Rivergold School stage Friday, June 13 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for kids and students. Rivergold School is located at 31800 Road 400 in Coarsegold.
The mission of Community Dance and Theater is to allow all children access to the arts, creating opportunities for all income levels, according to the organization’s literature. Community Dance and Theater is said to be dedicated to volunteerism and to giving back to the community, while inspiring children to become powerful community leaders, through dance, theater and performance.
