Did you know that Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre
bring culture to the Clear Lake Area with the help of UHCL alumni?
As the weather in Bay Area Houston starts to cool, the stage begins to heat up with the 2012-13 Synchronicity season presented by Bay Area Houston Ballet & Theatre. This year's BAHBT board of directors is filled with UHCL alumni who are excited for the upcoming performances.
"Each performance will surely delight and enrich the pleasure in seeing the arts thrive in our community," stated Rosalind Perez, newly elected chair for the board of directors and UHCL 2007 distinguished alumna. "October's premier of Edward Scissorhands in classic ballet style was a perfect beginning for our upcoming year of exquisite dance."
With the growing quality and number of dancers in the company, BAHBT has brought on a full-time executive director, Sharon Zaal. "We are truly blessed to have Sharon at the helm of our organization," said Perez. "She has already been a tremendous asset advancing the organization's brand and operations."
Next in line is the ever-popular production of The Nutcracker. Set to take the stage at the company's performing residence location at UHCL, matinee and evening performances span two weekends from Nov. 30 – Dec. 2 and Dec. 7-9
Joining the BAHBT board this year is area business leader, UHCL 2005 distinguished alumna and current Alumni Association Executive Council member, Kimberly Campbell. "Kimberly brings a wealth of knowledge to our organization," said Perez. "She, along with the rest of the board, works tirelessly to achieve the goals of BAHBT, helping promote our fabulous dancers and advancing performing arts in our area."
With Space Center Houston as the backdrop, viewers of this year's third program will be transported through the universe with a collection of innovative works during Celestial Mechanics. This thought-provoking dance display will have staged and interactive performances from February 22-24, 2013.
The season culminates with a whimsical rendition of Seussical from Apr. 12-14. Under the acclaimed direction of Broadway performer, Kevin Cahoon, patrons will be treated to many childhood character favorites featured in Dr. Seuss classics. Tickets for all productions can be purchased online beginning six weeks prior to show time at www.bahbt.org. Discounted tickets are available to UHCL students.
"With a stellar group of dancers and top-flight leadership, I look forward to a great year of quality performances and on-going cultural enrichment within Bay Area Houston," added Perez. "We encourage all residents of the region to support the arts and enjoy the immense talent offered in this community."
