The Sun Valley Ballet School will present a free performance of "Alice in Wonderland" for its sixth biennial Children Series. The show will take place at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum on Monday, Feb. 22, and Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 9:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. each day.

The Children Series consists of a series of free productions by the Sun Valley Ballet School for elementary and preschool children in Blaine County. The Papoose Club, Joe's Backhoe Service, SFP Studio and Atkinson's Market make the performances possible. The Children Series production is an abbreviated and narrated version of "Alice in Wonderland," which the company performed last December.

The performance will feature colorful costumes, wonderful music, a great story and the Sun Valley Ballet School dancers. In the past five Children Series events, the ballet school has filled the nexStage Theatre for four performances.

This year the theatre is fully reserved for all four shows for students from Carey Elementary School, Woodside Elementary School, Hailey Elementary School, Hemingway Elementary School, Bigwood School, Pioneer Montessori School, The Community Elementary School, The Mountain School, Stepping Stone Preschool, Little River PreSchool and Teddy Bear Corner.

A Q & A session will take place after the show with the cast and Sun Valley Ballet School Artistic Director Sherry Horton. Attending children will learn about dance and ballet as well as how a ballet theatre production is created.
