FRACTURED WONDERLAND - Lake Superior State University student dancers strike poses as the Evil Queen - Susan Drockton - and Cheshire Cat - Kayla Price - from Alice in Wonderland. LSSU dance professor Deborah Choszczyk and psychology/dance senior Katherine Drockton have rewritten that story, plus Little Red Riding Hood and Rumpelstiltskin, into an LSSU Dance Company original production of Fractured Fairy Tales. Shows are April 10-12 at 7 p.m. on the Arts Center main stage.(LSSU/Shibley)

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – The Lake Superior State University Dance Company is proud to present Fractured Fairy Tales, this year's fanciful spring dance concert that “fractures” three popular fairy tales with music and dance, bringing unsuspected twists and turns to the stories and outcomes.
Shows are April 10-12 at 7 p.m. on the Arts Center main stage.
LSSU dance professor Deborah Choszczyk and psychology/dance senior Katherine Drockton have rewritten Little Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin and Alice in Wonderland. More than 30 dancers will tell the stories through dance and movement that include original make-up designs and live music composed by LSSU literature senior Brian Jean.
