Marin Dance Theatre, an internationally recognized dance training center, located in San Rafael, presents this delightful full-length children's ballet choreographed by the Bay Area's accomplished choreographer and MDT Artistic Director, Lynn Cox. This will be the 26th year celebration of this enchanting story about Sophie!
The full-length ballet of "Sophie and the Enchanted Toyshop" features over 120 dancers of all ages, including professional guest artists. Enjoy the Dickens-style street scene that comes alive with townspeople, aristocrats, school children, cadets and mysterious masqued players. A kindly toymaker arrives with his mischievous alley cats and is touched by Sophie's generous, kind spirit. He rewards her with an amazing journey to a beautiful snow kingdom filled with snow princesses, fairies and other delights. He then sends her on a magical sleigh ride where she finds herself at the Toymaker's shop. Sophie is treated to dancing clowns, soldiers, bunnies, and dolls from many countries, all performing for her. It is a journey she truly will never forget.
