Marsden Fox said the arts com- munity has also come together to help, mentioning friends from the Arctic Playhouse and Russell Gusetti of Blackstone River Theatre lending a hand. "So many volunteers – we are real- ly volunteer run. We are very grateful for that," she said. She also said none of this would be possible without her mother, Artistic Director and Founding Prima Ballerina Herci Marsden, allowing this space on her property. Marsden Fox said it was always the dream of her grandmother, Eileen Marsden, back in 1954, to have a piece of property where you could have both a school and a theater. The property at 52 Sherman Ave. is home to SBRI's Brae Crest School of Ballet, but there wasn't the space for a venue – performances take place at various theaters. "So I believe that it took from 1954 to now, that I could bring my grand- mother's dream … it came to frui- tion," Marsden Fox said. "I feel very proud of that." Marsden Fox said her vision is an "intimate setting with art and with nature." "Brae Crest is known for its wildlife and tranquil setting," she said. "But a place is nothing unless you share it, and that's what we've always tried to do here." The performance on Nov. 22 will include The State Ballet of Rhode Island, performing Herci Marsden's Act 3 Ballet Divertissement, from "Coppelia," with Principal Dancer Ashley Pabon and guest artist Josh Thake, from Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. Also performing will be cabaret artist Ida Zecco, with Jim Rice on piano, from The Arctic Playhouse; and The Exiles, of Blackstone River Theatre: Bob Drouin on fiddle and bouzouki, Russell Gusetti on guitar and concertina, Torrin Ryan on uil- leann pipes, and step dancer and percussionist Kevin Doyle. The performance is limited to 80 guests, and all COVID-19 regulations will be in effect. Masks must be worn (Marsden Fox said even dancers will be dancing in masks). She also said the grounds have some heating lamps. Mickey G's Clam Shack will be in attendance. Grounds will open at 1 p.m. A rain/snow date of Sunday, Nov. 29, has been set. Tickets are $30 per person and may be reserved by calling 401-334- 2560. Visit www.stateballet.com for more information. Marsden Fox said SBRI has applied for another round of grants, hoping to be able to do even more with the outdoor performance space. "I can think of so many things to do on that stage, so much that we can offer," she said. "I can't wait to collaborate again." Soloist dancer MEGAN TEIXEIRA, of Lincoln, will perform on Sunday, Nov. 22. The Exiles, clockwise from left, BOB DROUIN, KEVIN DOYLE, RUSSELL GUSETTI and TORRIN RYAN, will perform in the SBRI Take It Outside Community Performance on Sunday, Nov. 22.
