Fairy Fun In Indy

My daughter recently discovered an Italian cartoon series called “Winx Club”, which follows a group of fairies around on their mystical adventures. And looking back, she’s always had an interest in fairies whether Tinkerbell or Tooth. So when I heard about some fairy-themed events popping up around Indy, I realized we had a lot to add to our calendar AND yours. Here’s the scoop:

{As with all events we publish, we recommend contacting the venue to confirm final details. Events appear in chronological order.}

See prancing fairies in the Butler Ballet performance of Sleeping Beauty.

Take the kids to one of the most beautiful fairytales adapted to the ballet stage, Sleeping Beauty. Princess Aurora’s life will unfold to Tchaikovsky’s musical score, the dance of magical fairies and of course, the kiss from a true love {which depending on how ‘icky’ your kids think kissing is, you may want to shield their eyes for!}. Tickets range $21.50-$28.50/ea. An add’l storyhour available Sunday only.

Date/Time: Friday, April 13-Sunday, April 15. Various times

Location: Clowes Memorial Hall, 4602 Sunset Ave, Indianapolis
