Event Description

Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts, the official school of Ballet 5:8 and one of the only Pre-Professional classical ballet schools in the Chicago South Suburbs, presents The Wayward Daughter, an original full-length ballet inspired by the classic story of the Prodigal Son. This May, join Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts for an incredible journey in a fairytale world where a princess leaves the safety of her home to explore what lies outside... much to her own peril. The production features a cast of over 100 dancers from Ballet 5:8’s nationally-recognized classical ballet training programs, custom-designed costumes, dramatic classical music, a fantastic fairytale setting, and original choreography by Ballet 5:8 Artistic Director Julianna Rubio Slager. This powerful drama portrays the tender love and compassion of God as a father and is a treat for the entire family!
