Emerald Coast Theatre Company: Dancing Lessons
Thursday, January 17
Upstairs: Grand Boulevard Event Venue
560 Grand Boulevard
Miramar Beach, Florida 32550
It’s been said life is a delicate dance. Emerald Coast Theatre Company continues its 6th season by presenting the Northwest Florida premiere of Mark St. Germain’s poignant 2014 play, “Dancing Lessons,” January 17 through February 3.
The performance runs Thursday, Jan. 17 (opening night) through Sunday, Feb. 3 and will be staged at ECTC’s performance space located at 560 Grand Boulevard (upstairs) in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, located in Miramar Beach, Florida.
This play tells the story of Ever, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, who seeks the instruction of a Broadway dancer to learn enough dancing to survive an awards dinner. The dancer, Senga, however, is recovering from an injury that may stop her dancing career permanently. As their relationship unfolds, they’re both caught off-guard by the discoveries —both hilarious and heartwarming — that they make about each other and about themselves.
Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on Sundays. Curtain time on January 20 is 6 p.m. Running time is 95 mins. This production is appropriate for ages 13 and older.
Theater patrons are encouraged to come early (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) to browse artwork by local artists showcased in the ECTC Lobby Gallery curated by Lori Drew, founder of Lowkylzart. A portion of proceeds from each sale benefits ECTC and its education outreach and scholarship programs.
Tickets are $30 for adults; $28 for seniors (55 years old and up) students, and military. Purchase tickets online at emeraldcoastheatre.org/ticketsor call (850) 684-0323.
