This new dance drama for young audiences introduces audiences to a young girl named Wren who is new to the neighborhood. Being new isn’t always easy and Wren learns this the hard way when Marlie, the neighborhood bully, talks her into posting a very hateful and untrue email about another girl. While Wren senses that this isn’t a good idea, her eagerness to fit in is strong. Pollyanna Audiences will see, right along with Wren, that words of hate are truly weapons whether spoken or launched into cyberspace.
This collaboration with Ballet Austin features choreography and dance which bring Wren’s words to life. Ultimately, SPRITES is a story told through action and movement in a powerful way, one that will no doubt leave a lasting impression on audiences of all ages, especially those ages 8 and older.
