Fredericksburg Youth Ballet Ensemble ballet Nov 19-21

a dancer from the Fredericksburg Youth BalletThe Fredericksburg Youth Ballet Ensemble invites the public to enjoy both old and new holiday traditions as it presents Nutcracker & Narnia at the Fredericksburg Theater Company’s Steve W. Shepherd Theater on November 19 – 21, 2010.

Billed as A Showcase of Tradition & Treachery, each show features two performances by the studio’s dancers.

The Nutcracker is the timeless Christmas classic danced to the lively score by Tchaikovsky. Colorfully-costumed dancers of all ages will recreate the familiar roles of mice and soldiers, sweets and acrobats, snowflakes and the snow queen. This version features all 40 local dance students and has become a Fredericksburg holiday tradition.

The second half of the show marks the world debut of Narnia, a new ballet composed by Mark Hierholzer and choreographed by Lisa Bohnert. Inspired by the works of C.S. Lewis, Narnia is the tale of a magical land where evil threatens, animals speak, and children tangle with treachery and truth. The work has been nearly a year in progress, and features original music, choreography, costumes, lighting and sets. Twenty auditioned dancers perform all roles in this original production.

Hierholzer will perform his score on the piano with the dancers live onstage for all shows.

The show’s four performances are Friday, November 19, 7:30 p.m.,; Saturday, November 20, matinee at 2 p.m. and evening performance at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, November 21, matinee at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students, and are all general admission. Tickets are now on sale and available from any ballet student. They can also be purchased at Ms Rhonda’s School of Dance, 202 E. Creek St, Fredericksburg, Monday through Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. Requests for tickets can be made by calling 830-998-0785, by leaving a message at 830-997-0756, or via email at

Mark Hierholzer received his BA in piano music performance from UTSA and his MA in piano performance and literature from Eastman School of Music. Mark currently resides in Fredericksburg and is the music director and organist at Zion Lutheran Church. He directs and composes for the Fredericksburg Chorale, two German community choirs, the League of David, and the Zion Children’s Choir. Mark also privately teaches 34 piano students.
