(Branchburg, N.J.) –American Repertory Ballet is pleased to announce it has scheduled a pre-show activity for children prior to its performance of A Midsummer night’s Dream at Raritan Valley Community College on March 18. The activity will begin at 2 p.m., one hour prior to the start of the performance. Children can enjoy our dress-up and photo station in the lobby, trying on real costumes that range from wands to wings to elf hats! We’ll have everything a woodland creature or fairy needs!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream: ARB Artistic Director Douglas Martin’s full-length ballet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, premiered last spring to high praise. Set to an enchanting score by Felix Mendelssohn, the ballet brings to life the wit and splendor of one of William Shakespeare’s most popular comedies. Featuring colorful choreography, costumes and sets, the story portrays the weaving tales of cunning fairies, quarreling lovers and a hilariously amateur acting group as their paths cross in a magical forest.

American Repertory Ballet’s mission is to bring the joy, beauty, artistry and discipline of classical and contemporary dance to New Jersey and beyond through artistic and educational programs, presented by a financially responsible organization.

Performing at venues across the state of New Jersey, the company, led by Artistic Director Douglas Martin, will once again present the finest ballet available to the residents of New Jersey and beyond. Tickets to all performances are currently available.
