We’ve all heard the phrase, “like a kid in a candy store,” but you don’t have to be a child to indulge in a smorgasbord of sweets. Join us at the Cincinnati Ballet Center for Sugar Rush on Thursday, Aug. 14th! The event is from 5:30 to 8 pm.
You’ll feel like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory (minus that annoying Veruca Salt) as you explore a colorful candy extravaganza. Think Katy Perry’s Candyfornia. Several local sweeteries will sample their best cupcakes, ice cream, donuts, pies, pastries and more. Guests will vote for their favorite treat of the night — the winner will receive bragging rights and an award to display at their shop for a full year! We will also have a panel of experts handing out special recognitions for the most creative.
Whether you’re a Princess Lolly or more of a Lord Licorice, there will be goodies to satisfy every sweet tooth.
A portion of ticket proceeds will benefit Cincinnati Ballet, which presents exhilarating performances, extensive education outreach programs and top-level professional ballet training at Cincinnati Ballet Otto M. Budig Academy. Cincinnati Ballet will also be giving Sugar Rush attendees a sneak peek at this season’s The Kaplan New Works Series, an exciting, intimate production of entirely new ballets, during the event. www.cballet.org
This event is open to all ages. Children 8 and under are free when paired with an adult paid admission. Tickets are just $10 until July 14th and just $15 after!
