Wellington Ballet Theatre To Stage ‘Snow White’ In Delray, Wellington

Wellington Ballet Theatre is excited to present an original interpretation of Snow White this month. There will be performances at the Crest Theatre in Delray Beach on Sunday, May 4 and at the Wellington High School auditorium on Saturday, May 10.

With artistic direction by Rocky and Dorie Duvall, the company will perform an original ballet of the classic Snow White featuring the dancers of Wellington Ballet Theatre. Snow White is a non-traditional modern ballet based on the classic fairy tale penned by the Brothers Grimm and popularized by the Walt Disney classic animated feature.

The local production features choreography by Melissa Waters and will be perfect entertainment for the whole family. The experience will be magical, and young children are both invited and encouraged to attend.
