originally published: 05/07/2019
(ATLANTIC CITY, NJ) -- In keeping with their yearly tradition, the Atlantic City Ballet will end its critically acclaimed 36th season with a world premiere. Cinderella will be performed Saturday, May 18th at the Circus Maximus Theater in Atlantic City and then on May 19th at the Richard Marasco Theater in Monroe Township.
With original choreography by Artistic Director, Phyllis Papa, this timeless fairy tale of rags-to-riches and love conquers all tells the story of Cinderella, a sad young woman who transforms into a beautiful princess, despite the best efforts of her overbearing evil stepsisters. Set to Serge Prokofiev’s hauntingly beautiful score and as if stepping between the pages of a beloved storybook, AC Ballet’s Cinderella will vividly delight audiences with the beauty and majesty of classical ballet, wrapped in the promise of “happily ever after,” and generously sprinkled with a wonderful dose of humor. Complete with a fairy Godmother, a handsome prince and an unforgettable ball, the magnificent staging, music and costumes make this production a delight for all ages.
Cinderella will be performed on Saturday, May 18th at 7:00pm in the Circus Maximum Theater (Caesars Hotel) in Atlantic City. Tickets are $45 for adults, $20 for children/students (17 and under), and Seniors (65 and older) get a 15% discount. Atlantic City residents can get tickets for $15. Tickets are available for purchase online.
The Monroe Township performance will take place on Sunday, May 19th at 4:00pm in the Richard Marasco Theater. Tickets are $30 for the general public, $25 for patrons, and students are admitted for free with current ID. Tickets are available for purchase online.
