A ballerina's graceful balance is inspiring to aspiring dancers, captivating to houses of cards, and vexing to bulldozers razing cliff-side condor habitats. Dwell on adroit appendages with today's Groupon to Heartland Youth Ballet's performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Sumtur Amphitheater in Papillion on Saturday, June 25, at 7:30 p.m. Choose between the following ticket options:
• For $5, you get one lawn-seating ticket (an $11 value).
• For $6, you get one amphitheater-seating ticket (a $13 value).
Heartland Youth Ballet co-directors Robin Welch and Rachel Vickrey imbue fledgling fleet feet with technical and artistic training to prepare them for careers in professional performance. For one melodious evening, onlookers can aim their eyes toward the stage and take in Welch’s artful choreography set to the dulcet tones of Felix Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a musical composition based on the play by up-and-coming writer William Shakespeare. Alongside professional guest artists—whose resumés document experience on Broadway and with various esteemed national dance companies—Heartland Youth Ballet’s budding ballerinas will bring to life the Bard’s madcap tale of mismatched romance, mischievous fairies, and the perils faced by outdoor performance artists.
Spectators have the choice of settling under the night sky on their own blanket or inflatable rocking horse with a lawn-seating ticket, or grab a spot within the 350-seat amphitheater. During the evening’s performance, hungry wallets can trade their contents for concessions, and ballet-goers are encouraged to equip themselves with weather-appropriate gear in case the clouds decide to bomb the earth with water.
