FirstLoveWorks is commissioning an original production to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims arrival in America. Choreography and production by Ballet Magnificat!, America’s premiere Christian ballet company. Original score by Alan Bailey, Christian musical theater composer and scriptwriter.
Entitled “A Future and a Hope,” the ballet tells the inspiring story of the first Pilgrim women who braved hardships and even gave their lives for the sake of their children and future generations. Ballet Magnificat! will also perform their original work Freedom.
Ballet Magnificat!, based in Jackson, MS, was founded by Kathy and Keith Thibodeaux in 1986. Kathy is an international silver medalist in ballet, and Keith was a childhood star (little Ricky on the I Love Lucy show) and is an accomplished musician. With Ballet Magnificat!, Kathy had a vision for something totally unheard of–a touring, professionally-trained Christian ballet company that dances for the glory of God. FirstLoveWorks sponsored New England performances by Ballet Magnificat! in 2004 and 2005, and we are thrilled to welcome them back for this special Pilgrim anniversary.
