It’s one of Tacoma City Ballet’s most popular dance events: the “Storybook Ballet Theatre,” now in it’s second year. Company dancers entrance kids (and their grown-ups) with ballet renditions of fairy-tales, rhymes, limericks and other stories both this weekend and next. Guests are encouraged to come in their favorite storybook costume.
New this year is the Fairy Tale Tea Party, at 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. this Saturday May 11, featuring the performance viewed from the setting of a formal hosted English tea. Tickets are $10-$15, but are nearly sold out.
“Storybook Ballet Theatre” performances run 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. May 18; 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. May 19. Tickets $5. Merlino Building, 508 6th Ave., Tacoma. 253-272-4219, tacomacityballet.com
