The Scarab Thief is a family-friendly show about friendship, adventure, and sacrifice inspired by story elements of the classic ballet, The Pharoah’s Daughter. Follow the adventures of an archeologist who, caught up in a windstorm in the deserts of Egypt, takes refuge in an ancient tomb full of riches, and a new friend who will take her on an adventure from the banks of the Nile River, through an ancient Egyptian court, and even to the grand scales of the Book of the Dead. Original choreography by the members of Mesilla Valley Dance Collective tell a story through genres of dance ranging from classical ballet, to modern dance, as well as saber twirling and live vocal performances.
