Role Description

Young Marie Van Goethem: the very young dancer who posed for the famed Degas sculpture “Little Dancer Aged Fourteen.” Marie is smart, tough, funny, streetwise and resourceful. She is fiercely protective of her little sister, Charlotte, and helps to support her dysfunctional and poverty-stricken family by working as a “little rat” at the Paris Opera Ballet, but also by stealing. Her goal is to become a full-fledged ballerina so she can lift her family out of their dire circumstances. She is vulnerable to the harsh conditions which surround her, but she is talented and determined to succeed. History does not tell us what ever happened to the real Marie after she left the ballet. Needs to be a fantastic dancer, actor, and sing as well as possible. Must have exceptional classical ballet technique (pointe). Alto (Bb-Db). Note: This role has been cast.
