50% Off Second Ticket to Amira: A Chicago Cinderella Story
Hyde Park School of Dance (HPSD) celebrates its home base – Hyde Park, Chicago – with a world premiere to kick off its 25th anniversary season: Amira: A Chicago Cinderella Story. Staged by HPSD Founding Artistic Director August Tye, ballet mistress and choreographer at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Amira is the story of a young girl forced to leave her native country without her mother, arriving in Chicago and struggling to make a home in Hyde Park. The story follows the events of the traditional Cinderella story, leading to a Masked Ball in Hyde Park and a young man who becomes smitten with Amira. When she runs away at midnight, he and his friends search various Chicago neighborhoods trying to find her. They travel Little India, downtown, Pilsen, Chinatown, Bronzeville, and Hyde Park until they meet at a place that is special to both of them.
WTTW members who purchase one general admission ticket to the Friday, June 15 performance at 7:00 pm or the Saturday, June 16 performance at 6:00 pm may purchase a second general admission ticket at half price.
