Marin Dance Theatre, an internationally recognized dance training center, located in San Rafael, presents this delightful full-length children’s ballet, choreographed by the Bay Area’s very talented Lynn Cox. This will be the 21st year celebration of this enchanting story about Sophie! Sophie and the Enchanted Toyshop features over 140 dancers including professional guest artists. Enjoy the Dickens style street scene that comes alive with gypsies, townspeople, aristocrats, school children, cadets and mysterious masqued players. A kindly toymaker arrives with his mischievous alley cats and is touched by Sophie’s generous kind spirit. He rewards her with an amazing journey to a beautiful snow kingdom filled with snow princesses, fairies and other delights. He then sends her on a magical sleigh ride where she finds herself at the Toymaker’s shop. Sophie is treated to dancing dolls – clowns, soldiers, bunnies, dolls from many countries – all performing for her. It is truly a journey she will never forget. Following the 1 pm performance, meet the cast at the Teddy Bear Tea Party and enjoy sweet treats, refreshments and have the opportunity to take photos with the cast of “Sophie” dancers. www.mdt.org
