KANSAS BALLET PRESENTS
SUMMER SHOWCASE! THE WIZARD OF OZ
A Benefit Performance for Kansas Ballet's Youth Outreach Programs
Our Summer Celebration features guest artists Nicole Graniero & Oscar Sanchez of The Washington Ballet and Liang Fu & Elysa Hotchkiss of Kansas City Ballet. Act II features Kansas Ballet dancers in the beloved childhood classic, The Wizard of Oz. This original ballet, choreographed by Stephanie Heston and Alexander Smirnov, has delighted families at multiple venues across NE Kansas.
Ticket price includes admission to the performance, kid-approved treats & fun activities, and a pre-show Q&A with the professional guest artists! All ticket proceeds benefit Kansas Ballet youth outreach programs for Topeka Public Schools & Boys and Girls Clubs of Topeka.
Kansas Ballet’s Visiting Artist program is funded in part by the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC), which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. We are deeply grateful for additional support provided by these Summer Showcase partners: Ramada Topeka Downtown Hotel and Convention Center, Capitol Federal Foundation, and Topeka Performing Arts Center.
