Enjoy family-friendly fun at the Kate with Eastern Connecticut Ballet on Oct. 13-14. The fifth 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.

Performances will take place on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 21st & 22nd at 1:00pm and 4:00pm.  
Tickets to the Ballet Spooktacular are $14-20 The Kate box office
