  • Delaware Dance Alliance, who produced the original ballet productions "Twilight Ballet" and "Pirates of the Caribbean," announces its spring performance of "Alice in Wonderland" at the Schwartz Center for the Arts in Dover on April 27.
    This highly entertaining one-act ballet tells a story of a girl named Alice who, while dreaming, falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by a variety of very peculiar creatures.
    The performance, filled with fun, frills, excitement and wonder, proves to be a delight for audiences of all ages. Before the 6:00 p.m. curtain call, Delaware Read Aloud will host a Mad Hatter Tea Party featuring the cast of "Alice in Wonderland." The Tea Party begins at 4:30 p.m. and guests are invited to dress up in their favorite Alice in Wonderland outfit including hats, gloves and boas! You won't want to miss out on the fun, so please join in for a memorable, fun-filled evening the whole family will enjoy.
    This very special ballet production is made possible through the cooperative efforts of people who support and promote the art of dance. This performance of "Alice in Wonderland" is re-staged from a version choreographed by former Mid Atlantic Ballet's artistic director emeritus Sara Taylor-Warner.
    With Warner's consent, Delaware Dance Alliance's director Michele Xiques incorporated some of her own original, innovative choreography that will be performed by the fabulous "Alice in Wonderland" cast. The story idea, costumes and sets are all courtesy of MAB with director Patrick Korstange.
    Reservations are required for the Mad Hatter Tea Party. The Tea Party begins at 4:30 m.m. For tickets, call 674-4423. Tickets to the "Alice In Wonderland" ballet can be purchased at the Schwartz Center box office or schwartzcenter.com. 678-5152. The performance begins at 6 p.m.
