Le Moulin Rogue de Danse and Billy Elliot made for a full weekend at AOP!

    Tutus and tap shoes were in abundance this past weekend at the historic Turnage Theatre! Shannon Reising and her troupe presented "Warped" a themed recital for parents and fans and even included a couple of our AOP staff in the fun. We saw full houses Friday and Saturday evening and introduced many people to the beauty of the Turnage. Sunday, we had the distinct pleasure to celebrate Mother's Day with a screening of our latest offering in our Broadway on the Big Screen series, "Billy Elliot". Patrons were delighted by the score and story of hope this musical brought to life.
