Kids from 1 to 92 will enjoy the waterfowl on the lake, the lights and drama of the beautifully appointed stage, and the elaborate hand-stitched gowns from our vast collection of period costumes.
All of our performers are unpaid volunteers from the local community. Some of them have never danced before, while others have been with the Festival since its inception 30 years ago! If you would like to join our production team, please send a message.
