Dear Mobile Ballet Supporters and Patrons,

You have likely heard the news about the City’s plans to demolish the Civic Center complex including the Theater in a few months to begin construction on a new state of the art venue. Though we will be in a different performance venue for a while during the redevelopment, we assure you that we will continue to perform an outstanding repertoire at the same level of excellence for which Mobile Ballet is known, continuing our mission of bringing the highest caliber ballet productions to our community. 

In the meantime, this news means that The Sleeping Beauty on March 23-24, 2024, will be our last production to be held at the existing Civic Center Theater. Be sure to get your tickets if you haven’t already, and encourage your family and friends to do the same! 

Come be a part of our final performances at the Civic Center Theater and join us in celebrating the rich legacy of artistry that has taken place on this stage over Mobile Ballet’s 37-year history. 

We look forward to seeing you at the Theater for The Sleeping Beauty, and continuing to share this beautiful art form with the community for many decades to come. 

Stay tuned for an announcement of our 2024-2025 Season coming soon! 

Thank you for your support,

Katia Garza

Mobile Ballet Artistic Director
