Centennial State Ballet Presents 'Giselle' March 10

Centennial State Ballet - Giselle

 

Centennial State Ballet will host their 4th annual Murder Mystery fundraiser on Friday, March 10, 2017 at the Stewart Auditorium at the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center, 400 Quail Rd, Longmont, from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

Centennial State Ballet, formerly Longmont Dance Theatre, has been in operation for 19 years as the exclusive, pre-professional ballet company of Longmont, Colorado. CSB is a non-profit youth ballet organization dedicated to providing classical ballet performances for the community.

Centennial State Ballet will host the “Phantom at the Ballet” event at the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center as part of their annual fundraising efforts. The evening will begin in the Swan Atrium and guests will enjoy food from local catering sponsors. This interactive event will also feature a pas de deux performance from Giselle. Centennial State Ballet students and guest artist Matthew Helms will be featured in the performance and supporters of the organization will act as characters in the murder mystery event. Guests are invited to delve into the age old question of “who dunnit" at a local art exhibition, with prizes given at the end of the evening to the top 3 detectives. Tickets include entrance to the event, appetizers, a plated dinner, dessert and a cash bar.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will help support Centennial State Ballet’s spring gala performance of Giselle, a two-act ballet of the Romantic period. Donors are invited to support the event through donations of any amount. Individuals that give at the $100 level or higher are eligible to receive a role as a character in the Murder Mystery event. Please contact CSB for further information or to advertise in our upcoming 2017-2018 Season Performance Programs.
