MORGANTOWN -

Morgantown Dance and the Morgantown Ballet Company held their final showing of "The Snow Queen" Sunday afternoon.

The Snow Queen is a fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson about a struggle between good and evil. The ballet was held at The Metropolitan Theatre in Morgantown on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The artistic director said the turnout was good for all the showings.

"We had great turnout everyday, in fact, even yesterday when there was a home football game. We were a little nervous about how many people would be here, I think we had a little over 200 so we were very excited. We have a cast of 73. Ages range from about age five to almost 60 years of age. So it's really been a community effort" said Desiree Witt, Artistic Director.

Morgantown Dance brought in two guest artists for the ballet, Nurlan Abougaliev came from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, and Christopher Nolen came from the August Wilson Center Dance Ensemble.

Morgantown Dance puts on two major productions each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. The upcoming spring production will be Romeo and Juliet.
