Schimmel Center Presents New York Theatre Ballet In MOTHER GOOSE
The Schimmel Center presents New York Theatre Ballet in Mother Goose on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. The ballet features the wit, wisdom and whimsy of a lively baker's dozen of Mother Goose characters, including the three blind mice, Little Bo Peep, Jack and Jill, and the three-legged goose.
With its ever-expanding repertory, New York Theatre Ballet's cutting-edge programming brings fresh insight to classic revivals, paired with the modern sensibilities of both established and up-and-coming choreographers.
Pre-show activities-including arts and crafts, story time and a themed photobooth- start at 2:00 p.m. in the Schimmel Center lobby.
The Schimmel Center's Family Series continues to both educate and entertain young audiences through varied performances and corresponding pre-show activities.
