The Stories of Peter Rabbit and Friends will introduce the audience to four different stories of Beatrix Potter in three acts: Tale of Two Bad Mice, Tom Kitten, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. This ballet is perfect for the elementary aged child (4-12).  Find out what happens when two mice, Lucinda and Jane, get loose in the beautiful doll house of Winefred and are disappointed to find the table full of food is made of porcelain.  Then watch the antics of Tom Kitten and his sisters Moppet and Mittens who get into mischief while waiting for fine company to arrive.  Finally in the third act enjoy the rambunctious Peter Rabbit as he gets loose in the live garden of Mr. McGreoger.  While being chased Peter loses his clothes and must return to find them with the assistance of his cousin Benjamin Bunny.  Benjamin lallygags in the garden much to Peter’s dismay and then they encounter a cat.  Hiding under a basket for safety they become trapped and must be saved by Benjamin’s father.  New choreography, costumes and characters enhance this repertoire of Dance Wisconsin.  Original music composed by former Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra Conductor David Lewis Crosby (1957-2008)
