Angelina Ballerina is a sweet little mouse who loves to dance! In this play, she has the opportunity at her school, Camembert Academy, to perform in front of her idol Serena Silvertail. It's the dream of a lifetime for Angelina but somehow things don't quite turn out as she hopes, and she has to pick a dance other than her beloved ballet to perform. As you can imagine, with some soul-searching and creative thinking (as well as some help from her dad and best friend, Alice), it all works out for a happy ending.
The kids in the audience (ranging from 1-10 I would say) all had an amazing experience. I wasn't initially thrilled to see Angelina 'product' being sold in the lobby before the show, but I have to admit, it was pretty darn cute to see all those little girls with their wands and pink mouse ear headbands on. It made them feel like part of the show I think, and who doesn't want to feel special and dress like a dancing mouse?? As an added bonus at the end of the show, the performers invited all the kids to come down and dance the last song together with them. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful family play.
Angelina Ballerina: the Musical is playing at the City Playhouse Theatre in Thornhill from March 10-16, 2012. For tickets and information, visit their website at www.angelinathemusical.com/
