Local mother and son to perform with Portland Ballet

A student from Cannon Beach will be performing in The Portland Ballet’s production of The Enchanted Toyshop on Thanksgiving weekend.

Legolas McDonald Goldstein, a 5th-grader at Fire Mountain School, will be performing as a Pierrot French Clown. He has danced for five years.

Legolas and his mother, Margaret Hammitt-McDonald, who will also be in the show as a Ukrainian Mother, regularly commute to Portland to train and rehearse.

The magic begins when two children are left behind in a toyshop, and the Blue Fairy brings to life a parade of dancing dolls to entertain the guests. Choreographed specifically for the world-class academy by John Clifford, Toyshop showcases various skill levels and international dance styles. Pinocchio, playing cards and poodles are all part of the fast-paced fun. Since its premiere in 2003, Toyshop has become TPB’s signature showpiece.

Four concerts will be performed Thanksgiving weekend at Lincoln Performance Hall, 1 and 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 26-27. Tickets start at $10. More information at theportlandballet.org or 503-452-8448 ext. 106.
