The Columbia County Ballet, Imperial Theatre and SRP Federal Credit Union Present ‘Michael Viator’s Cinderella’

Friday, September 21st | 7 PM – 9 PM 

The Columbia County Ballet will perform Cinderella for The Imperial Theatre’s 100th Anniversary!

The story of Cinderella can be found in many stories and legends dating back to ancient China. Today, some 1,500 variations of the story exist.  The story we are most familiar with serves as the base of the ballet and was written by Charles Perrault.  It, like The Sleeping Beauty, was one of eight stories in the book titled Histoires ou Contes du temps pass (Stories and Tales of the Past).  Originally, in 1870 the Bolshoi theater requested Tchaikovsky to write the music for the ballet but it never materialized.  Many decades later, a composer by the name of Sergei Prokofiev took on the task of scoring the music for the ballet of Cinderella. He began his work in 1940, but put it on hold during World War II to write the opera War and Peace.  In 1944, Prokofiev picked up work on Cinderella and finished the score a year later.  Based on the world’s greatest fairy tale, the Columbia County Ballet presents Michael Viator’s Cinderella.

Dreams of Harlem Musical at the Hardin Auditorium

Dreams of Harlem is a brilliantly written play that travels back in time to the 1929 Harlem Renaissance. In 2018, Author Wright, a part-time film instructor and struggling writer, known to his family and friends as AW, wishes he could go back in time and meet the idols of the past, such as: the writers, Zora Neal Hurston, Langston Hughes, singers, Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, jazz musicians, Louis Armstrong, Valaida Snow and his idol, the first African American filmmaker, Oscar Micheaux. AW’s wish comes true when he goes to sleep and wakes up on the streets of Harlem in 1929.
Before AW wakes up in the world of the Harlem Renaissance, he struggles with everyday issues of balancing a family life, career, and passion for writing. AW’s choices for the latter, takes him on a road that almost puts his family and friends in intermediate danger. However, with the help of a praying wife, not only does AW gets a chance to redeem himself, he also gets a chance to watch his dreams unfold when he creates the film of a lifetime with Oscar Micheaux.
The characters that AW meets on his journey opens his eyes to the fact that the people he should put on pedestals are not the idols of his past, but the people that are in his present and future, such as; his wife Ria, daughter Zora Lang and best friend Musiq.
This production takes you on a journey of self discovery like the classic films The Wizard of OZ and Midnight in Paris. Author Wright relates to all of the struggling artist, singers, actors, and filmmakers of today. The message of Dreams of Harlem is to pursue ones dreams, yet remember to uplift others.
