Dance Troupe Presents Three Halloween-Related Ballets

Sat., Oct. 25, 1997

Dance Theatre Northwest unveils “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” tonight as part of a trio of new Halloween-related ballets at The Met.

The troupe, made up of dance students, will also stage “The Biggest Pumpkin in the Patch” and “The Spider.”

Dance Theatre artistic director Janet Wilder choreographed all three ballets.

Philip Broadbent will perform the role of the sorcerer in the showcase ballet. Caroline Tripp will perform as the apprentice, and the brooms will be danced by Shauna Deehr, Mandie Diehl and Jaimi McGuire.

Wilder adapted “The Biggest Pumpkin in the Patch” from the children’s tale by Steven Kroll. The ballet will include 15 dancers with lead roles danced by Emily Schmedding as Milton Mouse, Amanda Lochmiller as Mabel Mouse and Lexi Santos as Samantha Squirrel.

Sara Hinnencamp will dance the spider role in “The Spider.”

Performances begin at 2 and 7 p.m. but children who want a pre-show tour of the Spider’s Castle should arrive a half-hour prior to the performance.

Tickets are $10, $6 for students and seniors, available at the door, G&B; Select-a-Seat outlets or call 325-SEAT.
