The Little Dancer…a Family Musical

The Little Dancer is a holiday family musical that tells the heart warming story of the most famous dancer in the world.

It all begins with Mama Van Goethem taking on extra laundry work so that her daughter Marie can fulfill her lifelong dream to take dance lessons. Not long after, Marie’s ill grandfather grows sicker, needing an expensive new medicine that her Mama cannot afford. Marie, fearless as always, agrees to model for the mean Edgar Degas. His model’s strength inspires the cranky old artist to create something the likes of which the world has never seen before. But the long hours of modeling force Marie to drop out as the coveted featured dancer in the Opera House’s annual holiday ballet. Months later, when an invitation arrives in the mail for her to attend an exhibit at the most important gallery in all of Paris, Marie is in for the surprise of her life.

This 55 minute holiday show has it all – a delightful story, singing, dancing, art – all wrapped into one hour of theatrical magic. Suited for ages 6 – 106!

The show will run through the month of December at Theatre 71, Upper West Side.
