A Bedtime Story is an original story ballet showcasing the many talents of our dancers in a wonderful theatrical production with imaginative costumes, scenery and lighting.

She meets the hunter and milkmaids and village girls and boys and joins in the merriment as dancers from Ireland, Spain, the Orient and Egypt come to greet the King and the fairies bring blessings for a prosperous harvest.
