Ballet Spooktacular is a Treat at The Kate!

For children who just can't wait for Halloween, Eastern Connecticut Ballet's Spooktacular serves up a mix of "BOO-tiful" dancing, clever costumes, and a chance for young audiences to be a part of the fun. ECB's family-friendly celebration returns to the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts center in Old Saybrook, CT this fall: Saturday October 29 at 11:30am (sensory friendly performance), 1:30pm, and 3:30pm and Sunday, October 30 at 11:30am, 1:30pm and 3:30pm

Offering new treats both on and off the stage, the Spooktacular performance combines bewitching ballet, classical music, and special effects.

Returning to the stage will be the haunting Halloween Waltz and The Sorcerer's Apprentice, the tale of a novice wizard with a malfunctioning wand.  Guest Choreographer Krystin Dixon's Dancing Bones will feature life-size, glow-in-the-dark skeletons.  No need to fear, however: the phantasms are fascinating, not frightening.

Children are invited to wear costumes to the event (and their parents, too, if they dare).  Trick-or-treating through the decorated theater, a parade across the stage and photo opportunities with cast members will follow the program.  (So if you've got it, haunt it!)
