FREE CAROLINA BALLET TICKET'S TO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WITH VALID I.D.


The Carolina Ballet has launched a pilot program that offers free tickets to all high school students with a valid student ID.


The new program kicks off this weekend with the ballet company's performances of Beethoven: Symphony No. 9. It's followed by the ballet's Shakespeare series, which is scheduled for this coming winter and spring. That's when the company will join an international celebration marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death with four productions based on his plays and sonnets.


The performances take place in downtown Raleigh at the Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts. Here are the shows that high school students can attend for free:


Loves Speaks - Feb. 4 to Feb. 21

Tempest Fantasy - March 3 to March 20

Macbeth (world premiere) - April 14 to April 17

George Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream - May 12 to May 15


Here's the fine print: All tickets are based on availability for select performances at the discretion of Carolina Ballet. Students can call the Carolina Ballet Box Office at 919-719-0900 to reserve a seat. The tickets will be held at the will call window at the theater. Students must present a valid student ID to pick up their ticket. Students may also get their tickets at the theater on the day of the show one hour before curtain.

OPERATION LOVE a note from Alexa Robertson

At the beginning of each year, Mrs. Christy asks us all to pick a word or phrase we want to embody or somehow incorporate throughout the rest of our year. This year, my intention was to give back in all aspects of my life. While brainstorming ideas of how exactly to do so, I came up with a fundraiser I call "Operation Love". Operation Love is essentially a toy drive for the children battling cancer in the Raleigh Area. It would begin now and would end on February 10th. On Valentine's Day, I would go and deliver all of the stuffed animals collected to the children currently receiving treatment in the Oncology Ward of UNC Chapel Hill's Children's Hospital. This idea is both very important and personal for me because I was once a child receiving treatment at the very same Oncology Ward. Almost 11 years ago, I was in the hospital battling a stage four, basketball sized Wilms Tumor. While I was receiving my treatment, I was given a stuffed animal. This toy brought me the joy and strength I needed to get through such a difficult time. I wish to bring the same strength, love, and joy to children fighting similar battles. I would love to encourage all CC and Co. dancers to donate NEW (used stuffed animals cannot be delivered) stuffed animals and place them inside of a large bin by the front desk. This would be a studio wide fundraiser, and all contributions would be greatly appreciated. If each dancer brought merely one stuffed animal, we would have the supplies necessary to bring a great deal of happiness to many children fighting for their lives on the only day of the year dedicated solely to love; Valentine's Day. Together, we could share the immense love inside of CC & Company’s studio to those who need it most!


Thank you for your time,

Alexa Blair Robertson

Operation Love


MISSION: Millions of children around the world each day must undergo the harsh chemotherapy and radiation necessary to fight off cancer. These treatments are long and grueling making it not a very pleasant time for the patients. Children of all ages must endure this difficult time. Lucky for us, we are healthy, happy, and get to enjoy the wonderful gift of dance. Those sick with cancer do not. However, if we all work together, we can help to bring a bit more love and happiness to those battling cancer here in the Raleigh area. We can do this through the form of stuffed animals.


WHY: Stuffed animals have the capabilities to bring so much joy. They offer compassion, love, and strength and are memoirs that can last a lifetime, which are exactly what a child fighting cancer needs most. I know this because I was once one of those sick children. I was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumor at the age of four. My tumor was stage four and the size of a basketball. I had to undergo months of chemo and radiation at UNC Chapel Hill Children’s Hospital. While receiving my treatment, a woman came by my room one day. She gave me a stuffed dog saying that he had my name written all over it. That stuffed animal became my buddy during the rest of my time there in that oncology ward. Although my stay there was never easy, that dog made me happier and stronger. I still have that dog today, almost 11 years later.


HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE: I would love to encourage you all to donate NEW stuffed animals and place them inside of the large bin by the front desk. ALL of these animals will be personally delivered to the patients currently receiving treatment in the Pediatric Oncology Ward of UNC Chapel Hill Children’s Hospital on Valentine’s Day this year. This is a studio wide fundraiser, and all contributions are greatly appreciated. If each dancer brings merely one stuffed animal, we will have the supplies necessary to bring a great deal of happiness to many children fighting for their lives on the only day of the year dedicated solely to love. Together, we can share the immense love inside of CC & Company’s studio to those who need it most :)


DATES: Operation Love stops accepting donations as of Friday, February 10th. All donations will be delivered on Valentine’s Day.
