Spring Break for Kids returns with another kid-friendly ballet perfect for the whole family. The Monster Who Ate My Peas, the beloved children’s book, comes to life right before your very eyes featuring the apprentices and trainees of Grand Rapids Ballet and choreographed by Attila Mosolygo, Grand Rapids Ballet School Junior Company Director.
Based on the multi-award winning book written by Danny Schnitzlein and illustrated by Matthew Faulkner, this 30-minute performance tells the funny and poignant story of a young boy who doesn’t want to eat his peas. When a crafty monster appears underneath his kitchen table, the boy is ready to make a deal: If the monster eats his peas, the boy will give the monster any of his possessions. First, it’s the boy’s soccer ball. Then, his bike. But, when the monster raises the stakes, will the boy refuse and make the difficult decision to face his own fears? Children and adults alike will be entertained and engaged by this wonderfully written tale about the value of will power.
Before the performance, enjoy pre-show activities including a costume dress-up, arts and crafts, the chance to win great prizes, and more.
Tickets are only $7 per person!
