Gwinnett Ballet Theatre launches kickstarter campaign to support March production of “Journey”

Gwinnett Ballet Theatre has launched a Kickstarter Campaign in support of their March 28th and 29th performance of “Journey.” The campaign’s goal is $4,500. 
“Journey” is a contemporary, full length story ballet in 3 acts. It is a Georgia Premiere. The ballet was written and choreographed in 2004 by GBT’s Artistic Director Wade Walthall for his company, Evergreen City Ballet. 

Mr. Walthall's choreography is set to timeless music by Rachmaninoff, Gorecki, and Nyman. “Journey” incorporates classical ballet as well as contemporary elements to create a unique, modern story about the spiritual evolution of a young man, the circumstances of his life, and the choices he makes. Mr. Walthall describes the ballet as, "an 'everyman tale', universal in essence with truth and content common to all. It is a tale of the special journey we all take in order to find ourselves, love in our lives, and perhaps the stars..." 

“Journey” will be performed at the Gwinnett Performing Arts Center at 2:30pm and 7:30 pm on Saturday, March 28th and at 2:30pm on Sunday, March 29th. Tickets range from $12-20 and can be purchased through www.gwinnettcenter.com or by calling 888-929-7849.

The goal of $4,500 helps cover the cost of production, costumes, sets, and marketing.
