2022 Youth Ballet Summer Tour

“The Great Candyland Adventure”

The summer tour consists of approximately 20 free performances at area libraries, youth camps, community centers, retirement centers and nursing homes.

Join two quibbling sisters, Lolly & Polly, as they must work together to find all of Queen Frostine’s missing gumdrops in “The Great Candyland Adventure”.   As they dance their way through Candyland, they will encounter Lady Licorice, the Duchess of Swirl, Miss Mint, Mama Ginger, and other delightful characters in this deliciously colorful new Youth Ballet production.
