Chorus member Audim Brokenbough, who started singing with CY’s Find Your Instrument! initiative, talks about how FYI! transformed her life. Proceeds of The Little Dancer benefit FYI!.
There are very few shows that not only have a beautiful plot and cast to tell of it, but also which leave a person feeling no less than perfect – lighthearted and cheerful, hopeful and with the renewed willingness to be kind…just in time for the holiday season. A show that tells of a graceful ballerina who must strive against hardship to follow her passion, and an artist who must outpace his failing eyesight to see the creation she inspired to take form. A cacophony of beautiful voices swells in the background, an ensemble that helps to portray the majesty of the story being told while lifting our spirits and the hope inside of our hearts.
Steven Fisher‘s The Little Dancer is nothing less than extraordinary. With its pureness does it seep into our very souls to bring the story of a fourteen year-old girl, living in nineteenth-century France, to such heights as to give the audience the courage to expect more of a production – to hope that every show can mimic the quality of what is now being performed at Theatre 71.
