DOOMPADEE DOO. The production is a part of the Charleston Ballet Theatre's popular children's series. It even features dancers from their Broadway Dance Project, children both young and old. By old, we mean high schoolers.

MUSICAL THEATRE WITHOUT THE SINGING. Think "ballet theatre." The dancers perform their steps in the style of musical theatre — big, jovial, expressive — but that's as far as the similarities go. It's all dancing, no singing.

AND YES, THERE'S SOME WEIRD AL. What ballet production would be complete without the inclusion of a Weird Al song? After August Gloop pigs out and eats some of Wonka's treats, he gets the boot in a dance choreographed to the excessively satirical singer's "Eat It."
