Abigrace Diprima as Cinderella

Gwinnett Ballet Theatre launches kickstarter campaign for “Cinderella” - calls for local support
By Staff Reports

When Gwinnett Ballet Theatre’s production of “Cinderella” opens at the Gwinnett Performing Arts Center on March 29th, the stage will be filled with beautiful new tutus, ball gowns, a splendid “Cinderella coach” and other set pieces creating a visual feast. The fairy tale ballet will have a whole new, beautiful look to thrill the hearts of everyone who loves ballet and happy endings.

To support the quest for funding to create the new production, GBT has launched a “Kickstarter Campaign.” This unique and very popular new way to raise money offers anyone the ability to pledge as much as they like, from $1 on up, to a project they wish to support. If the pledges don’t add up to the goal within a 30 day time frame, pledgers are not charged for their intended contribution. There is no risk for pledgers. 

“Gwinnett Ballet Theatre has a goal of $3,500 to reach by February 26,” says GBT Board Chairman Len Diprima. We are calling on all of our friends and supporters to pledge what they can. We are grateful for every pledge that comes in.”
