Newport’s classically trained contemporary ballet company, Island Moving Company, restages its beloved performance of Mother Goose for younger ages during four matinees March 3 - 5, 2017 at the enchanting Rosecliff Mansion.
Perfect for younger ones, Island Moving Co.’s Mother Goose at Rosecliff is a lively retelling of the familiar nursery rhymes using movement and live music. Audience members will be led by a minstrel and the effervescent Mother Goose herself through the spectacular rooms of Rosecliff for an interactive and entertaining performance event for children as young as three. IMC dancers will bring to life favorite kids' rhymes such as Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill and Little Miss Muffett with a new dance featuring a clock and some mischievous mice. The Company is joined by minstrel Alicia Ruggiero with Newport actress and educator Lisa Reimer directing the action and reciting the familiar rhymes as Mother Goose. The performance ends with an opportunity to get up and dance with the nursery rhyme characters.
