The Dekker Centre for the Performing Arts, along with the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils, are presenting Canada’s Ballet Jorgen - Anne of Green Gables The Ballet TM.
The performances are part of the 2019-20 Stars for Saskatchewan Concert Series.
According to the promotional material for the show, Canada’s Ballet Jorgen - Anne of Green Gables - The Ballet is “a playful, colourful and evocative production that will transport audiences to early 20th century Atlantic Canada. Based on the beloved Canadian novel by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables - The Ballet follows the adventures of Anne Shirley, an orphan girl sent to live on a farm in the fictional town of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. As a child of imagination, Anne takes much joy in life and adapts quickly, thriving in the close-knit farming village. Her imagination and talkativeness soon brighten up Green Gables.”
Canada’s Ballet Jorgen is performing the show. The original choreography is by Bengt Jorgen, C.M., and is based on Anne of Green Gables – The Musical with the music composed by Norman Campbell and ballet score arranged by Alexander Levkovich.
The date for the North Battleford show is Sunday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m.; a show is also scheduled for Friiday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Anne Portnuff Theatre in Yorkton. Those stops are just the latest in a tour that includes several locations across North America spanning from Prince Edward Island to British Columbia, and south to Colorado and Utah.
