A kaleidoscope of fairy tales — including the wacky misadventures of Alice and her pursuit of the White Rabbit — will unravel across the stage of the Carson City Community Center on Friday.

Ayako’s Dance Studio, under the sponsorship of Pinkerton Ballet Theatre, is presenting “Fractured Fairy Tales” at 7 p.m. in the Bob Boldrick Theater.

The story follows Alice, of “Alice in Wonderland” fame, as she chases after the White Rabbit and falls into the rabbit hole.

As in the original story, she comes across the Cheshire Cat, Caterpillar and the Mad Hatter’s tea party.

In Ayako’s version, Alice suddenly finds herself in “The Beauty and the Beast” fairy tale before Peter Pan flies her to Neverland.

Eventually she stumbles into another fantasy story, “Sleeping Beauty.”

Does Alice ever catch White Rabbit? That and more will be revealed in the performance.

Ayako’s students, ranging in age from 3 to over 70, will be featured in the fun-filled dance adventure.

The young performers are from Carson City, Gardnerville, Minden, Dayton and Washoe Valley.

Tickets are $13 for general admission, $8 for children 10 and under and seniors 60 and older.

Tickets may be purchased at the door prior to the show.

Additionally, a morning performance is being offered to area schools on Friday. This performance is presented to the schools as part of the Pinkerton Ballet Theatre’s outreach program promoting the performing arts to children free of charge.
