What a marvelous, dreamy place in Abilene! It has been called "The Jewel of Abilene." Rescued from the wrecking ball in the 1980s and meticulously restored to its former 1930 glory and stunning beauty (at a cost of $6 million dollars), this is a treasure of a theatre for this region of Texas!

So heres what we experienced at The Abilene Ballet by the Blonde woman at the front lobby! Actually still stunned and shocked at her Epic ignorants and complete lack of human compassion and understanding for a child with Autism! Guess you were as equally shocked when an adult grandmother ripped you over your hateful stupidity! I NEVER will ever attend... More
