I had the pleasure of speaking to Jennie Creer-King, the director of the Classical Ballet Academy in Provo, Utah. For the past year Ms. Creer-King's dance school has been preparing a new production of Hansel and Gretel with new choreography by Ms. Creer-King. The brand new costumes that will be used in the premiere on June 2, 2007 were produced from a collaboration between Ms. Creer-King and Tutus Divine. The new costumes include a witch, Hansel, Gretel, the Dew Drop and Purple Lilac Fairies, candy cane tutus, gum drop costumes and ginger bread dolls.

Ms. Creer-King based her production on the original opera and symphonic of work Engelbert Humperdinck. She reformatted the music and is using the symphonic version with a few operatic folk songs. The premiere of Hansel and Gretel will be held on June 2, 2007 at Spanish Fort High School Auditorium in Provo, Utah.

Ms. Creer-King, who has used Tutus Divine costumes at the Youth America Grand Prix 2006 Finals and will do so again at YAGP 2007, had nothing but praise for the people at Tutus Divine. Ms. Creer-King remarked that when one of their tutus needed adjusting at the YAGP 2006 finals, Tutus Divine staff was there for them.

Ms. Creer-King commented that "They have taken the story [of Hansel and Gretel] and created an animated look. Tutus Divine produced costumes that look like a story book fairy tale. They are very creative. The workmanship is absolutely professional. They are aware of the customer's satisfaction and have made any changes to costumes I have needed."

If you would like more information about classes at Classical Ballet Academy or their production of Hansel and Gretel, please contact Ms. Creer-King at the address above.
