ROCKWALL, Texas – January 24, 2017 – Royalty Dance Academy will present the ballet Hansel and Gretel at Granville Arts Center (300 N. 5th St, Garland, TX 75040) March 4-5, 2017. In the two-hour long production, the classic tale of Hansel and Gretel has been reimagined by director Gabrielle Palmatier. Tickets start at just $10 can be purchased by calling the studio at 972-771-3855 or purchased online at royaltydanceacademy.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Tatum Wolf and Skylin Helms star as Hansel and Gretel, respectively, in the fairytale classic. This is Wolf’s second leading role with Royalty Dance Academy. The eleven-year-old dancer previously played Michael in the company’s production of Peter Pan last year. “What I love about this show – besides dancing on stage – is the sets,” enthuses Wolf. “All of us in the cast got to help build the sets!” Helms adds, “My favorite part about playing Gretel is getting to be there every Saturday with my friends because the show would not be the same without them!”
