CB_Snow White promo 2022Accessibility is a top priority for upcoming production at the Aronoff, April 7-10

Cincinnati, OH (April 5, 2022) – Cincinnati Ballet is pleased to share every performance of our Family Series: Snow White will be ASL (American Sign Language) interpreted. The Saturday, April 9 performance at 11 am will also be audio-described for patrons who are visually impaired. “Every child and dance lover should have the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful artform,” said Scott Altman, Cincinnati Ballet President and CEO. “Cincinnati Ballet is committed to providing a quality entertainment experience for our deaf, hard of hearing and vision impaired guests.”

Cincinnati Ballet’s Family Series: Snow White returns to the Aronoff Center, April 7-10. The Family Series is an hour-long, narrated ballet performed by the Second Company – CB2 and Cincinnati Ballet Otto M. Budig Academy students, staged by Second Company – CB2 Director Suzette Boyer Webb. We are so pleased to welcome families back to the Aronoff for an interactive dance performance created with children in mind. Snow White is the third installment of our Family Series, a regional premiere co-commissioned by Cincinnati Ballet and Ballet West. Snow White features magic elements – the poisoned apple and talking mirror – that audiences know from the classic story. Young dancers from the Otto M. Budig Academy perform the roles of Snow White’s trusted friends – the Seven Dwarfs and woodland animals – who guide her on her journey to find true love. The production, choreographed by Pamela Robinson Harris, is also narrated by actors playing the Brothers Grimm, making the story easy for even the youngest members of your family to understand and enjoy. The production runs a little over an hour and includes free, fun, fairy-tale themed lobby games and activities before performances.

Tickets start at $20 and are on sale now. For more information visit cballet.org.
