Hickory Ballet To Perform Alice In Wonderland

Catawba County Library
Press Release

NEWTON, N.C. – During April and May, the Catawba County Library will be showcasing special adaptations of the Alice in Wonderland ballet, as performed by Hickory Ballet and Performing Arts. The performances are interactive, encouraging children to get involved in Alice’s adventures as she tumbles down the rabbit hole.

The goal of the shows is to teach youngsters how to communicate through movement and to demonstrate how dance tells stories without words. Sharing the narrative of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel is a plus!

Each Alice in Wonderland presentation features a different troupe of dancers and will be followed by an activity based on the story. The shows are open to families and to people of all ages. Assistant Library Director Siobhan Loendorf remarked “Children especially are in awe of the dancers in full costume and pointe ballet slippers. We are fortunate to be able to collaborate with the Hickory Ballet and the Friends of the Library to bring this unique experience to our community.”

The three April performances will take place at the following locations:

  • Saturday, April 6 at 10 a.m. at the Southwest Branch
  • Saturday, April 6 at 11 a.m. at the Maiden Branch
