OHS Students Performing at Phillips Center

Sun Country Dance Theatre (SCDT) is performing its encore performance of its original story ballet “Alice’s Adventures” at the Phillips Center on Saturday, March 7 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $12 and free for children under 11.

This is the first year the company has been able to perform at the Phillips Center. It also happens to be the last time performing “Alice’s Adventures” as a new original story ballet will premiere next year.

The SCDT performers range in age from 8 to 18. This year’s cast includes Oak Hall senior Emily Youngblood as the Cheshire Cat and Violet, and junior Sarah Youngblood as the Queen of Hearts. 

This year, “Alice’s Adventures” will be better than ever because SCDT added new characters including little mushrooms alongside the caterpillar as well as bluebells and violets to the living garden scene. 

SCDT is a nonprofit organization that uses all of its proceeds from various fundraisers to give its dancers and audiences the best experience possible. The money goes to renting the theatres, making the costumes, and paying the lights and sound people.

If you are interested in supporting the SCDT dancers, you can use their “Amazon Smiles” and a portion of everything you purchase through Amazon will go toward bigger and better performances from SCDT.  https://smile.amazon.com/

“I’m so excited! Everyone’s worked so hard for this and it’s going to be great,” Sarah Youngblood exclaimed.
