NEW MARTINSVILLE — ArtsLink’s season of entertainment continues on Sunday, Oct. 24, with a performance of “Snow White” by the Oglebay Institute Youth Ballet.

The show will start at 2 p.m. at the Lincoln Theater with opening numbers by the All Valley School of Dance.

A spirited retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, “Snow White” is performed by Oglebay Institute’s Youth Ballet Company and features exciting choreography, spectacular sets and costumes.

The ballet version of “Snow White,” like the classic fairy tale, follows Snow White on her adventure as she meets a forest full of friends, including seven spirited dwarfs who help her regain her rightful place against her jealous stepmother.

“Children can cheer on the young heroine and her prince as they foil the plots of the wicked queen,” said Oglebay Institute director of dance Cheryl Pompeo. She added that the show brings plenty of energy, fun, suspense and new twists to this familiar classic, keeping the attention of young audiences. “This show is a great introduction to the arts and to the joy of dance, and it is a wonderful family activity.”

Tickets will be available at the door.

Funding for this program made possible with assistance from The city of New Martinsville Parks and Recreation Commission, West Virginia Northern Community College, WETZ/WYMJ Radio, Ohio Valley Online and the EQT Foundation. This program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.

ArtsLink is committed to providing universal accessibility wherever possible. Anyone with special needs may call 304-455-2278 to request assistance.
