BWW Previews: BALLETS WITH A TWIST Comes to UC PAC, 5/30-6/1

Ballets With a Twist is a wonderfully creative New York based dance company. This month, they will return to Union County Performing Arts Center's Hamilton Stage in Rahway for a special weekend engagement from Friday, May 30th through Sunday, June 1st. This is the company's fourth successful season at Hamilton Stage.

Ballets With a Twist will present their signature program, Cocktail Hour; a sassy suite of dances conceived and choreographed by celebrated dance-maker Marilyn Klaus. The show serves up classical ballet with pop sensibility. The program will include Champagne, Mai Tai, Shirley Temple, Mint Julep, Bloody Mary and much more.

The program will feature a pair of polar opposite Cocktail Hour premieres: Eau de Vie, a breathtakingly bright, frothy spirit fresh from the finest Continental salon, and The Boilermaker, a quintessentially American quaff with a touch of true grit. In celebration of the 60-year anniversary of The Tonight Show, the company will also pay tribute to the King of Comedy with a revival of The Johnny Show. Cameo appearances by young New Jersey dancers will add a touch of local flavor to the production.

Original scores by Grammy-nominated composer Stephen Gaboury and exquisite costume design by Catherine Zehr will complement the performance. Metropolitan area audiences will be delighted by the company's clever and unique style.

Ballet With a Twist fans can also prepare for a special treat. Your evening of entertainment will be enhanced with complimentary aperitifs and Shirley Temples for the kids in the Hamilton lobby before each show. Metropolitan area audiences should not miss this opportunity to see this wonderful dance performance. For tickets and venue details, call (732) 499-4226 or click here.
