Rehearsals Begin For “Tom Sawyer – A Ballet In Three Acts”

William Whitener has been making wonderful progress in two of the three acts of Maury’s new ballet, scheduled to open the the new Kauffman Center for the Perfoming Arts in Kansas City MO on October 14 of this year.

Present at rehearsals were Maury, Brad Dechter (who will be orchestrating for performance by the Kansas Symphony), and Holly Hynes – internationally renowned costume designer, who had just returned from La Scala.

The company of 25 dancers leaped into rehearsals with tremendous enthusiasm.
