Approximately 1,000 people attend our Rudolph production each year and will enjoy your ad in our program! Deadline for ad placement is October 29th.  Learn More




T-Shirt Deadline on October 27th

Orders for our limited edition Rudolph T-Shirt are needed by October 27th.  We also have a Nutcracker one that can be ordered as well from our website.





State Street Ballet’s Library Program and Twelfth Night

This fall we are getting into the holiday spirit early, gearing up for our most hilarious collaboration yet. Based on Shakespeare’s classic text, this new version of The Twelfth Night will have your sides splitting and your feet tapping.


State Street Ballet’s Library Dances is privileged to work with an incredible group of students this year and it is already clear that they are supporting each other as they learn dances in the classroom and even practicing their choreography at home. These kids are putting in the work for a fantastic show!


Please join us  for a meal at California Pizza Kitchen on October 23 and 20% or your bill will be donated towards Library Dances
