2020-2021 Season

Carnival of the Animals

“Step right up” peek into the big top and be entertained by marvelous clowns, majestic mermaids, and freakishly fantastic dancing Siamese twins; only a few of our awesome acts. Be transported by the magic of the circus and the sights and sounds of our amazing ballet dancers.  Debussy’s evocative works for solo piano are paired with Saint Saens fantastical Carnival of the Animals for this thrilling program for the whole family. Inspired by turn of the century side show acts, “Carnival of the Animals” brings to life a menagerie of performers and a young girl looking for adventure and a mission to find a kind but sad clown in her dreams. “Come one, come all, to the Greatest Show on Earth”

Snow Queen

Described by the Charleston City Paper as the “Alt-Nutcracker”, Palmetto City Ballet’s production of “The Snow Queen” returns just in time to celebrate the holiday season! Based on the classic fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, “The Snow Queen” follows the beautiful young Gerda on her journey to rescue her true love Kai from the Snow Queen’s ice palace filled with mischievous goblins and dancing snowflakes. With the help of a friendly and energetic Blackbird, Gerda meets the Spring Sorceress and her garden of magical flowers, the Summer Princess and her court of palace maidens, and the Autumn Gypsy Queen’s band of thieves. This whimsical production is brought to life with choreography by SC Arts Commission’s 2017 Fellowship winner, and PCB artistic director, Jonathan Tabbert. The talented professional dancers of Palmetto City Ballet are joined by over 60 hand-picked young dancers from the Charleston community, with an original arranged score. Along with lavish stage designs, this production will delight all of your senses, and is sure to be a hit for the whole family! If your child was a fan of Frozen they will love the Snow Queen.
