AMER­ICA’S premier Chris­tian bal­let com­pany, Bal­let Mag­ni­fi­cat! will present De­liver Us! at the Guild The­atre this week­end.

Founded in 1986, the Jack­son, Mis­sis­sippi-based com­pany brings their most pop­u­lar and long­est tour­ing bal­lets to East Lon­don au­di­ences.

De­liver Us! first took to the stage in 2001 and has since been per­formed in Asia, Europe, North and South Amer­ica, and the Mid­dle East. Set to the mu­sic of Dream­works’ The Prince of Egypt, it tells the bib­li­cal story of Moses.

“Why tell fairy­tales when you can bring to the stage a story of such courage and faith,” chore­og­ra­pher Jiri Voborsky said.

Catch De­liver Us! on Satur­day evening and at a Sun­day matineé.

Tick­ets cost R175, with child and pen­sioner dis­counts, avail­able at the Guild The­atre. In­quiries: Kati Ansell at
