Dance piece sold out when performed in 2012

About 20 dancers will be on stage when Dancetheatre David Earle presents the main local production of its current season, a dance piece that’s a modern-day fable, on Dec. 14 and 15.
The Shepherd’s Tale, which sold out six studio shows when it debuted locally in 2012, returns this year as a larger production incorporating a cast of youth, apprentice and professional dancers in a mainstage venue, a news release said.
“Poised to become a new local holiday tradition, the performance is appealing to all ages,” it said.
The show will be staged at the E.L. Fox Auditorium, 21 Meyer Dr., with a Saturday Dec. 14 show at 8 p.m. and one on Sunday Dec. 15 at 2 p.m.
The Shepherd’s Tale is described as a modern-day fable that sounds an echo from a bygone age, preserving the magical tones of an old tale of enchantment.
Led by David Earle and Suzette Sherman, the cast includes Toronto’s Kate Alton and Bill Coleman as well as local dancers associated with Dancetheatre David Earle and young dancers from the Guelph Youth Dance Company.
“The Shepherd’s Tale was created to give our community a remembering of the sense of wonder Christmas had in our childhood,” its director, David Earle, said in the release. “We have fashioned a fable that follows a boy, lost in the forest, who meets wandering scholars, a sad princess, a gypsy queen, who all gather together to follow a star . . . And, of course, expect angels everywhere!” Tickets are available online at or by calling the studio at 519-837-2746.
