Ballet Jörgen - Cinderella Key City Theatre

Ballet Jörgen’s Cinderella is a classical ballet with modern, dramatic sensibilities perfect for all balletomane and aspiring ballet dancers!

Bengt Jörgen’s Cinderella is an innovative take on the classic fairy tale. Jörgen’s choreography balances the fairy tale elements of the story with a contemporary treatment of Cinderella and her family relationships.

Returning to the original Russian tradition of having women perform the roles of the stepsisters, Jörgen builds a more realistic and human look at Cinderella and her circumstances, and then uses these scenes to both counterpoint and highlight the magical aspects of the story.

Glenn Davidson’s set design creates a fantastical environment based on the idea of the natural world reclaiming man-made structures. Inspiration for the set pieces is drawn from ice storms and old growth forests. Costume designs by Robert Doyle playfully echo each character’s personality.

A Love Affair - A Burlesque Revue

We are purveyors of (almost) nude performance arts mixing dance, theatre, comedy, and luscious sensuality to dress-up and revive the classic art of burlesque entertainment!

Did you watch the movie? Well, don’t! It’s got nothing on us. Burlesque is about creative self expression, embracing all humans at all stages of life, in all shapes and sizes and from various skills and backgrounds. A “catch-all” art form designed to titillate your senses, make you laugh, think, and feel all the feelings.

Book your seats now for another sensational, vaudeville affair brought to you by Deja Louve and Key City Theatre.
