During the first weekend, young Clara will be played by Redmond resident Kaelyn Lefferts. Thirteen-year-old Kaelyn is a 7th grader in Vista at Open Window School in Bellevue. She started dancing when she was 2. This is her fourth year at Bellevue's Emerald Ballet Academy, where she dances at least five days per week. Kaelyn also takes a class from her mother, Terrel Lefferts, who teaches dance for Redmond Parks and Recreation.
Kaelyn and nearly 200 other EBA students will share the stage with regional dance professionals, stellar guest artists from San Francisco Ballet and American Ballet Theatre, and the Rainier Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets to this family favorite are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors and $20 for youth. They are available at www.npacf.org or by calling 425-984-2471.
