Presented by the Leigh Purtill Ballet Company since 2017, Sweet Sorrow ®, A Zombie Ballet will grace the stage one more time before returning to the crypt. Don’t miss your chance to see this Halloween classic!

This original sequel to Shakespeare's classic "Romeo & Juliet" was created by Artistic Director, Leigh Purtill, for those who have a dark romantic soul and an intense desire to experience the underworld.

The story resumes with the funeral of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. A mysterious and powerful apothecary awakens and lures them into her underworld as they shed their living bodies. You’ll follow Juliet’s cousin, Rosaline, who encounters zombies, lost souls, spiders, werewolves, a mighty Raven Queen and more in her lonely search for Juliet in the underworld. Will Rosaline return to the living or will the underworld be her final resting place?
