The Magic Toy Shop

December 2017









Combining traditional character dance and classical ballet, The Magic Toy Shop is the enchanting tale of a Shopkeeper’s beloved toys who come to life and happily perform for prospective customers, until the day when two spoiled girls enter the store with their mothers and decide to purchase and separate a pair of Can-Can Dolls. The night before the families are to return for their selections, the toys share an evening of farewell performances before the Cossack declares they should rebel and fight to keep the Can-Can Dolls from such a wretched fate. The next day, when the families return for their dolls, the toys do indeed rebel, causing the Shopkeeper to refuse to sell her precious toys to the girls, who leave in a huff from the magical shop while the Shopkeeper and her toys celebrate.
