Ballet Fantastique’s sparkling holiday tradition, An American Christmas Carol, returns for 2017! Donna and Hannah Bontrager have re-imagined Charles Dickens’ beloved story in iconic post-WWII America with their original choreography set to the velvet voice of international chart-topping jazz singer—and local sweetheart—Halie Loren. Retro-glam choreography fuses drama and humor as it weaves the story of penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformative quest. Loren (double-nominated for multiple Independent Music Awards) sets the score with her winsome original arrangements of standards by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole. Actor Adam Goldthwaite joins the company as “Smokey Joe” Marley. Ballet Fantastique’s flagship American Christmas Carol is for the young and young at heart (post-sugarplum set included), and it promises to charm even the stoniest of humbug hearts.
