About

Debbie Allen has created one original sold-out Kennedy Center show after another—from Pepito’s Story and Dreams to last season’s smash hit Pearl—and now she’s back again! The Emmy®-winning creative powerhouse brings back Brothers of the Knight, her incredibly hip adaptation of the classic fairy tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses, for more terrific performances!

Though the young Knight brothers are forbidden to dance by their strict preacher father, they continue to sneak out night after night. The only clues to where they go are the torn-up shoes by their beds the next morning. When the housekeeper catches on to their secret, will she turn them in? Find out in this exuberant musical directed and choreographed by Debbie Allen that features young local talent performing ballet, hip-hop, swing, slide, tap, and step—plus music by pop superstar James Ingram.

Recommended for children ages 5 and up
