A Fairy Tale Comes to Life / Girl Scout Nights

Program Description: Every year Plano Metropolitan Ballet thrills audiences of all ages with their original production of a classic fairy tale. There is comedy, magic, love and a little mischief in each production. PMB's special Girl Scout Night! is an "open-curtain" performance in which the audience gets to observe the entire production, including warm-up. After the performance there will be a Q&A session with the entire company. A custom designed patch is included with ALL performances. Additional performances are available. Girl Scouts will receive a patch; however, there will be no warm-up viewing or Q&A on these dates. By watching a fine arts performance, girls gain an appreciation for the arts, which can help develop a strong sense of self.
