The Georgia Ballet’s “Peter Pan” Flies into Powder Springs

September 2, 2016

The Georgia Ballet is thrilled to bring its season opener of “Peter Pan” to the J. Alton Keith Theater October 8-9. This will be The Georgia Ballet’s first performance of “Peter Pan” in their 57 year history. The production is staged and choreographed by Daet Rodriguez, Artistic Director, and Margit Peguero, Ballet  Mistress. “After performing Peter Pan with the St. Augustine Ballet last season, I knew I wanted to bring it to GAB and share the exhilarating show with our community,” says  Mr. Rodriguez.

Over the last hundred years the story has itself taken flight in many performing arts genres. The Georgia Ballet is transporting you into the world of Neverland through  a professional ballet performance. Providing a delightful approach into the characters’ psyche, the show is “an invitation to dream.”

In the effort to continue to give back to the community and add to the fun, The Georgia Ballet is partnering with MUST Ministries by inviting all audience members to dress up in their favorite costumes and bring a jar of “Peter Pan” Peanut Butter and other non-perishable goods. Donation bins will be located at the theater throughout the weekend for the community to make donations.

“Peter Pan” will also include school field-trip shows on October 7. “The school field-trip shows, accompanied by the STEM-related study guides, are a great way for schools to give students a quality live arts experience, while being able to relate the activity to their studies” said Susan Zealy, Development Director.

Looking forward to performances in the Paulding communities, The Georgia Ballet is reaching out to audiences of all ages and interests, from the traditional ballet enthusiasts to the younger generations of new-comers seeking quality entertainment opportunities. This production of “Peter Pan” promises to offer an enchanting experience for everyone.

The 2016-2017 season also includes The Georgia Ballet’s annual holiday favorite, “The Nutcracker” that will run from Dec. 2-4, and the not to be missed performances of “The Sleeping Beauty” March 4-5. In addition, The Georgia Ballet is introducing a new series entitled “Dancers Up Close” which invites the community into the studios to experience a behind the scenes look at each performance.
