Ballet presents ‘Cinderella’–and humor, too

Ballet patrons lucky enough to score tickets to a new version of Cinderella being staged next week will find something decidedly different on the stage: Along with a handsome prince, a beautiful princess, glittering costumes and graceful dancers from Los Gatos Ballet, the production–which debuts at West Valley Community College Theater on May 25–will be heavily laced with humor. … Los Gatos High School senior Madeleine Webber and Margot Aknin, a senior at Valley Christian, will each dance the lead in two performances as the scullery girl who lives happily ever after with her prince. … After graduation Webber will attend Westmont College in Santa Barbara, and will continue dancing with the State Street Ballet. San Jose native Aknin will enter the Pittsburg Ballet Theater as a trainee, and aims for a professional career in dance. more
