FEBRUARY 18, 2014 Moscow Festival Ballet in Sleeping Beauty at the Perot Theater at 7:30PM. The Sleeping Beauty, a crowning jewel of Marius Petipa’s career, is often considered the finest achievement of the Classical ballet. It is a grandiose and refined blending of the traditional mime, expressive pas d’action and spectacular divertissements in a lavish theatrical setting. Tchaikovsky was delighted with the invitation to write the music for a ballet based on Charles Perrault’s well-known fairy tale. A baby princess, condemned at her christening by an evil fairy to prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday, is saved by the gift of the good Lilac Fairy, who declares the princess will only sleep until awakened by the kiss of a prince. The fairy tale, replete with a king and queen, fairies both good and evil, a beautiful princess and dream prince, magical stage effects,

MARCH 29, 2014 - May 3, 2014 TRAHC Presents First Impressions: a selection of portraits and figure paintings by Runcie Tatnall. “Tatnall’s painterly realism lends it wry, sensitive eye to all kinds of subjects, from a world-weary bulldog to a shadowy boxer, to urban erosion, and then to the seductive call of the sea,” Tatnall’s website says. “His paintings pull the views into a world evoking such painters as Hopper, the Ash Can School, and John Singer Sargent. They invite; they don’t discourage.” Tatnall trained in painting and illustration at the University of Delaware and has studied at the Art Students League in New York City. He has been exhibiting professionally since 1995 in Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and New York City. His work is part of collections throughout the United States. He currently works as an assistant art professor Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. www.trahc.org

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. Come meet the family. We’ll leave the lights off for you.
