One event on December 17, 2017 at 2:30pm

The Academy Dance Center will present ‘BABES IN TOYLAND!,’ specially adapted for the dancers of the Academy’s 2017 Ensemble Company, at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts on Saturday, December 16th at 7:30 p.m. & Sunday, December 17th at 2:30 p.m.

All roads lead to magical, merry Toyland as Mary Contrary and Tom Piper prepare for their Holiday wedding! But villainous Barnaby wants Mary for himself, so he kidnaps Tom, setting off a series of comic chases, searches, and double-crosses! The “March Of The Wooden Soldiers” helps put Barnaby in his place, and ensures a “happily ever after” for Tom and Mary with a spectacular Christmas Celebration! This charming holiday adaptation is excellent entertainment for the whole family and features a large ensemble cast of local children and adults.
