The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) is pleased to announce Alberta Ballet II will visit Fort McMurray on April 19 to present two performances of Moments from Wonderland presented by Mix 103.7 FM, a ballet production adaptation based on the Lewis Carroll classic novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
“We are thrilled to welcome Alberta Ballet II to Nexen Energy Field House at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre in April,” said Russell Agnew, Interim Chief Operating Officer of the RRC. “This family-friendly show has been designed to entertain and engage the audience, and we know it will be a treat for our community as we continue to bring new arts and culture initiatives to the Wood Buffalo region.”
The dancers from Alberta Ballet II will perform in the 45-minute show, followed by a 15 minute audience-interactive question and answer session.
“With selected readings and episodes from Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass brought to life through dance, Moments from Wonderland is a perfect introduction to ballet and dance for young audiences, presented in an accessible, narrative-led format,” said Edmund Stripe, Artistic Director of the School of Alberta Ballet. “Alberta Ballet II is very excited to be performing Moments from Wonderland for the Wood Buffalo community.”
