Looking for some Easter weekend entertainment in the Orlando area? Head over to Northwest Dance Studio on Friday, March 29, or Sunday, March 31, to see a free performance of "Maggie." The show has a breathtaking blend of ballet, aerial, and modern dance.
"Maggie" is loosely based on the story of Mary Madgalene, the Biblical prostitute who found redemption. It brings her tale to modern times, in a colorful setting inspired by the movie "Moulin Rouge."
Maggie's story is set in a seedy brothel, where she's tricked by the ringmaster into joining the other women into what quickly becomes a nightmare. By the end, she learns that forgiveness and personal redemption are her tickets out of that world.
The performances are free, with a 7 p.m. show on Friday, March 29 (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and three Easter Sunday shows starting at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and noon (doors open half an hour before each performance). Get to the show early for the best seats, as seating is on a first-come, first served basis.
The "Maggie" performances will take place at the Northwest Church Auditorium at 5495 Clarcona-Ocoee Road in Orlando. Call 407-578-2088 for more information.
