This unique performance at the Byham Theater is sure to entertain audiences. Of note are the rave reviews that PBT received last year at the Byham Theater for its unique collaboration with a live music performance by B.E. Taylor, and in 2006 when PBT collaborated with local jazz musicians in showcasing innovative ballet possibilities.

While the 2-for-1 ticket offer applies only for the Thursday perfomance, please note PBT Perfomance Schedule:

Thursday, March 19,[masked]:30 PM
Friday, March 20,[masked]:00 PM
