The Fairfax Ballet Company presents its classical spring ballet, “The Doll Shop”, along with original works performed by the Senior and Junior Companies.
May 20 and 21, 2017.
Tickets will be available on April 8th here
One fine day in the year 1915, several patrons visit a Parisian doll shop specializing in unusual dancing dolls. The enthralled patrons are treated to demonstrations by dolls representing various countries and dolls of a circus theme before two prized twin dolls of a vaudeville theme are brought out. The twin dolls are purchased separately by different patrons, and arrangements for shipping are made.
Unbeknownst to the mortals, the dolls have a secret after-hours life and the twins are devastated at being separated forever. Their deep sorrow leads to some mighty wishing before the other dolls join them in a scheme to keep them together.
When the shop opens in the morning the patrons return to check their purchases and, upon discovering the crates are empty, accuse the shopkeeper of trickery. To everyone’s amazement, the dolls rally to her defense sending the patrons out the door before the twins return and merriment ensues.
Adding to the excitement, the Fairfax Ballet Company dancers will also premier two original pieces commissioned by the company. Join us for exciting performances of contemporary ballet and neoclassical dance.
Tickets will also be available at the door beginning one hour before each show.
Refreshments will be available for purchase during intermission.
