The Lake Charles Civic Ballet will perform Assemblé 2014 on March 22 at 7 p.m. and March 23 at 3 p.m. at the Rosa Hart Theatre. Collaborating with the LCCB are the Lake Charles Symphony and several local artists.

Among the pieces to be featured at the event are: "Cinderella" with music by the LC Symphony, the LCCB original "Louisiana Saturday Night" with music by Chris Miller & Bayou Roots, "All That Jazz: A Tribute to Bob Fosse" staged by Billy Ward and Amanda Edge, "Flamenco" with music by Thomas Townsley and Theresa Romero and "The Tortoise and His Hair," which showcases the work of local children's author Eloise Huber.

"The name assemblé is French for 'to come together' and (is) a ballet term that denotes a particular jump ending with both the legs and feet coming together. The name was carefully chosen, as it aptly describes the spirit and goal of LCCB's collaboration with the Southwest Louisiana arts community to create a show that will fuse ballet, music and original choreography into a memorable experience for all audiences," said the LCCB in a news release.

Tickets prices start at $20. Tickets are available at the Civic Center Box Office or through Ticketmaster or by calling 337-491-1432.

    By sunset this evening the temperatures will start to go down and rain will come to an end. Overnight we will be left with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Rain chances are down to 20% overnight. On Monday will have rain chances go back down to 30%. The same upper level high pressure will be migrating back south closer to our area and will limit, but not quite eliminate, our rain chances. Rain chances are best in the afternoon.
