- BALLET 5:8 AUDIENCE MEMBERS
Ballet 5:8's mixed contemporary program includes ballets Four Seasons of the Soul, Indwelling and Sigao Ekklesia. The technically stunning, neoclassical Four Seasons portrays the four seasons of life with a remarkable, deep connection between the dancers and the audience. Indwelling presents a keenly applicable picture of the struggle between good and evil within, and in Sigao, the dancers embark on a raw and relatable struggle with some of religion's biggest challenges.
Advance tickets to Ballet 5:8 performances are available up to 24 hours prior to each performance.

Performance Length: Approximately two hours including intermission.
Location and Parking: The First Presbyterian Theater is located inside First Presbyterian Church’s building at 300 W. Wayne Street in Fort Wayne. A fully-functioning venue with just under 300 seats, the theater is a comfortable but intimate performance setting.
Parking is available in two lots, one at the west end of the building (including handicap access) with one entrance off Wayne Street. The second lot is on the north side of the building. There are three entrances to this lot off Berry Street. Street parking is also available. There is no charge for metered spaces after 5pm weekdays and all day on Saturday and Sunday.
Children: Though this program is not designed specifically with children in mind, many young audience members have enjoyed past programs! Children should generally be at least seven years old to attend; younger children may also attend, but parent discretion is advised when considering whether they will be able to sit through the entire two hours of the program.
The First Presbyterian Theater is the proud host of an ongoing art gallery! Details are available at the PBC website here.
