Follow a trail of breadcrumbs to the Semel Theater for Once Upon a Time. Emerson Urban Dance Theater performs one show every semester around a theme, and this spring it’s fairy tales. During both weekend performances, the 35 members will dance their way through an array of fairy tales, which will be narrated by a live reading from (who else?) a grandmother figure. EUDT will perform renditions of familiar tales—and ones they wrote themselves—through rhythm, hip-hop, and tap dances. 

Look out for tickets being sold outside the DH—they will not be sold at the door. When else will you get another opportunity to see sassy dragons and twerking princesses on the Semel Theater stage?
