In celebration of its 10th anniversary season, the Louisiana Delta Ballet Company presented the family classic, “Cinderella” at Monroe Civic Center’s Jack Howard Theatre on Saturday, March 29.

Choreographed and staged by LDB Artistic Director Missy Crain and assistants El Marie Wessels and Shawnee Chason, this classical ballet featured all the magical moments that make “Cinderella” such a timeless tale — the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more — plus some extravagantly detailed tutus and tiaras. Hair and makeup for the performance’s main characters was masterfully executed by David Harp Evans.

The performance was sponsored by HerringStone’s, K-Sera, Pearl Pumphrey’s, Finley Construction and Dan Holt, D.C. Season sponsors include CenturyLink, Hixson Autoplex and The Costume Shop.

Dancing the principal role of Cinderella was LDB’s Kelley Davis with the dashing Prince danced by professional guest dancer Michael Levine.

As an added treat prior to the gala performance, LDB hosted a Glass Slipper Ball in the lobby of the theater. Little princesses and princes and their parents enjoyed refreshments while meeting and having their photographs made with LDB’s Cinderella and her Prince.
