The Cool Factor

  • AN Act of courage in Montgomery Sparked a National Movement... Montgomery is home to Mrs. Rosa McCauley Parks. Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.
  • Paddles Up!…the Montgomery Dragon Boat Festival was the first in Alabama and is now the largest Dragon Boat Festival east of the Mississippi and one of the largest attended festivals in the River Region.

ADT presents its 2017 production of “The Princess Stories and more”…

Monday, January 16, 2017

The Alabama Dance Theatre, celebrating its 30th Pearl Season, will present its annual spring concert featuring the “The Princess Stories and more” on Saturday, March 4th  at 2:30 pm (shortened children’s matinee of “The Princess Stories” only), Saturday, March 4th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 5th at 2:30 pm at Troy University’s Davis Theatre.

Choreographed by ADT’s resident choreographer, Sara Sanford, “The Princess Stories” is certain to delight children of all ages and the young at heart. The action packed Princess Stories feature “Pocahontas”, “Aladdin”, “The Sleeping Beauty” and “Beauty and the Beast”.  The stories are colorful and exciting and will appeal to both boys and girls.  The classic fairytale “Sleeping Beauty” is one of the most enchanting ballets in the classical dance world. The “Aladdin” excerpt, will highlight the romance between the exotic Princess Jasmine and the vagabond Aladdin.  The high-energy ballet “Pocahontas” spotlights the collision of the two worlds of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas.  The premier of “Beauty and the Beast”, is part one of a three year project, funded by The Daniel Foundation, to produce a full-length “Beauty and the Beast”.

“The Princess Stories and More” will include the late Leslie Norton’s delightful “Full Moon” (in the Saturday evening and Sunday performances), as well as newly choreographed works by Sara Sanford and Janie Alford.

“The Princess Stories and More” is sponsored by Wind Creek Hospitality, Jim Wilson & Associates, Regions Bank, Owen and Loree Aronov, Pickwick Antiques, The Daniel Foundation, Montgomery Advertiser, Cumulus and is funded in part by the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
