COLIN: THE BALLET
Manassas Ballet’s debut touring performance opens with a collection of classical and contemporary works, followed by Colin: The Ballet.
“Amy Grant Wolfe’s ballet “Colin: Son, Marine, Hero” traces the story of her 19 year old son’s life, from childhood years studying ballet and learning his Sabbath prayers, through teen years marked by a heartfelt decision, made on September 11, 2001 when he was just 14, to serve his country and became a Marine.
The performance goes on to depict Colin heading off to boot camp at Parris Island, falling in love, shipping off to Iraq with his Camp Lejeune, N.C.-based infantry unit and, finally, what came after the road-side bomb attack that claimed his life.”
