Faerie Tale an enchanting production

Audiences were delighted with SBC's premiere of Faerie Tale: A Royal Wedding on April 1 & 2, 2017, at Sangamon Auditorium.

Families enjoyed a pre-show Faerie Princess party, a beautiful performance and a photo opportunity with Cinderella, Snow White and Titania.

Thank you to Donna Lounsberry and Patrick Russell for capturing some beautiful moments from our performances.
