Roxey Ballet To Perform Cinderella In May

Roxey Ballet To Perform Cinderella In May

(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Roxey Ballet, New Jersey's preeminent contemporary dance company, is proud to present "Cinderella" on May 6 and 7 at The College Of New Jersey’s Kendall Main Stage Theater. One of the most loved stories of all time, this classical, family-friendly production is accessible to all audiences.

Enjoy the story of the stepsisters' comic antics, some fairy dust, a handsome prince, and an ill-treated servant girl who, against all odds, finds true love. Sets, costumes, and lighting are masterfully combined in a visually stunning presentation of this favorite fairy tale. This production promises to be a shining example of the magic of dance at Roxey Ballet.

"Cinderella" is directed and choreographed by Mark Roxey, co-founder of this acclaimed professional company. Also featured are costumes designed by Alicia Worden and Nilda Roxey-Jones, and lighting designed by Jeffrey Goldstein. Alongside the international cast of Roxey Ballet's professional performers, Cinderella also includes over 60 young artists from neighboring communities, including Lambertville, New Hope, Doylestown, Newtown, Stockton, Hopewell, Lawrenceville, Pennington, Ewing, and Princeton.

“The goal of our annual Classic Stories is to offer familiar tales in vibrant ways to engage new audiences,” says Hailey Glover, Roxey Ballet’s Director of Education and Outreach. “Cinderella is a family-friendly production that highlights the talents of student dancers complemented by our fully professional ballet troupe. Even the youngest dancers play pivotal roles and their enthusiasm is contagious!”
