I've always wanted more time - and this seemed like the opportunity to say more."

“What was different this year was we were able to have the principal dancers do curtain talks and we had the ‘See the Music’ program, and those add an educational component for our audience and connects them personally, and I think that really added something,” SPAC President and Executive Director Marcia White said. “In addition, attendance at our pre-performance events, like date night and American Girl night, increased greatly.”
