Storytelling at its best.
- NY Theatre Now


From 1854 to 1929, over 150,000 abandoned and neglected children boarded trains bound for the new West in search of a home. Our ballet follows Rev. Charles Brace, founder of the New York Children's Aid Society, as he crafts a future for Bessie, Mamie and sisters Susie and Dorothy.

Congratulations for an inspirational, educational and fitting tribute. In eight beautiful scenes, the narrative ballet tells this moving and heartbreaking story, wonderfully conveyed by this fine company of actor/dancers who with a look or a gesture augment the excellent choreography.
