(OCEAN TOWNSHIP, NJ) -- To celebrate the debut of Axelrod Contemporary Ballet Theatre’s newest production, Alice in Wonderland, the Axelrod is hosting a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” for parents and children on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 5:15pm before the start of the 7:00pm performance.
The event is open to patrons who purchase an adult and child ticket combo. The tea party will feature light fare food and tea, a photo opportunity with costumed dancers from the cast, as well as face painting to give the children a special “look” for the party.
“This is a fun, wonderful opportunity for parents to introduce their children to the magical world of theater and dance,” said the Ballet’s Board President Elise Feldman. “Every child has creative potential, and recent studies by the National Endowment for the Arts show that exposure to the arts (visual/music/dance) can positively contribute to a young child’s social and emotional skills.”
Alice in Wonderland will be presented on Sunday August 18 at 7:00pm; Wednesday August 21 at 7:00pm; and Sunday August 25 at 2:00pm & 7:00pm. Ticket prices are as follows: Regular Adult: $54, Regular Senior: $36, Students: $36. To purchase tickets to Alice in Wonderland please click here.
