Enjoy family-friendly fun at the Kate with Eastern Connecticut Ballet! The annual “Ballet Spooktacular” at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, Connecticut is an early Halloween celebration for both children and their parents.
The family friendly “ Spooktacular,” will conjure up a spellbinding mix of ballet, music, and special effects. Dancing skeletons that glow in the dark, a malfunctioning magic wand, ghostly visions in veils and other sights will captivate young audiences.

Children — and many of their parents too — show off their creative spirit by wearing costumes to the event. After the show, children get into the action by parading onstage, trick-or-treating throughout the decorated theater, and posing for photographs with the dancers.
“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is the tale of a little boy who gets in over his head when pretending to be a sorcerer. The score was made popular by a classic scene in Fantasia, Walt Disney’s animated film classic. “Dancing Bones” features dancers as colorful, glow-in-the-dark skeletons, but the illusion is more fun than frightening. Inspired by the music of Camille Saint-Saëns, the hauntingly beautiful “Halloween Waltz” displays the talents of ECB dancers.

Tickets to the Ballet Spooktacular are $14-20 The Kate box office
