Into their 5th decade of producing ballet in Newberry, the Newberry Ballet Guild members will present the classic ballet "The Red Shoes" this year.
Victoria and Alexandra are the best of friends and dance everywhere they go, but all of that changes when Victoria's family wins the lottery and moves to a nicer part of town. The mysterious cobbler has just the cure for Victoria's greed when she falls in love with a beautiful pair of red shoes that have been enchanted with a magic spell. When she puts on the shoes, they cause her to dance herself into a state of exhaustion, and she must rely on her truest friend, Alexandra, to save her. The Red Shoes is a cautionary tale by Hans Christian Andersen about the dangers one faces when they place objects above relationships. Will Victoria find it in her heart to accept Alexandra for who she is, or will she be destined to dance forever at the mercy of her beloved red shoes? Only time will tell...
