Season of Innocence
AustinVentures StudioTheater
8pm | April 10-11

Ballet Austin II performs a dynamic program in the intimate AustinVentures StudioTheater, allowing you an up-close look at the next generation of dance talent.

This year's program features the world premiere of Nick Kepley's Season of Innocence: An inspired retelling of Arthur Miller's The Crucible. The 1953 Tony Award-winning play bursts to life with searing physicality as it questions the human capacity to stay silent or speak the truth.

Season of Innocence
Choreography by Nick Kepley
Music by Steve Parker commissioned by
the Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation

PLEASE NOTE: Special, limited onstage seating is available for Season of Innocence, which will allow audience members to be seated alongside the dancers. Onstage seats are only $15 and do require purchasers to check personal belongings, including jackets and handbags, at the Ballet Austin's complimentary coat check. Special instructions will be provided to guests with reserved onstage seats prior to the performance.

BAII@AVST: Season of Innocence Onstage seating policy

A limited number of onstage seats are available for Season of Innocence. These seats offer an exciting and unique way to experience the performance with the action of the show taking place all around you. For your safety and for the safety of the performers, we ask that you adhere to the following procedures:

Late seating: As a member of the onstage audience, you must be seated at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the performance. If you are not seated before the performance begins, you may be asked to sit in available seating in the auditorium for the duration of the performance.

Personal belongings: Since some of the show's action takes place throughout the seating area, we have provided you with a coat check option at the box office in Ballet Austin's main lobby. All large coats, bags, and other personal items must be placed in coat check prior to the start of the performance in order to keep the seating area and pathways clear. Please limit the number of items you bring to the theatre on the day of the performance.

Dress code: Please refrain from wearing bright-colored clothing or any clothing that may draw attention away from the action on the stage. Out of consideration to the actors, also refrain from wearing perfume or cologne.

Playbills: For artistic reasons, our ushers will collect your complimentary playbill before you take your onstage seat. You may retrieve it at the end of the performance.

Restrooms and concessions: The performance is 45-minutes with no intermission. Once the performance begins we ask that you remain in your seats for the full duration. Please plan your trips to the restroom and concession areas accordingly. Food and beverages are not permitted on the stage or at your seat.

View of the performance: These seats offer a side/rear-view of some of the performance. Please note: some aspects of the action may be obstructed.

Please note: Management reserves the right to relocate or remove any patrons during the performance.
