Marshall Davis, Jr., at the Milwaukee Ballet Studio.

The last time a tap dancer appeared with the Milwaukee Ballet was… Oh yeah. Never.

Meet the Milwaukee Ballet’s guest artist, Marshall Davis, Jr., one of a kind so far, in this new TCD video by Garrett Katerzynski. Davis is in town to star in Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Simply Sammy, a ballet/tap fantasy about Sammy Davis, Jr.

Simply Sammy is one of three substantial numbers on the Milwaukee Ballet’s Spring Series at Marcus Center Uihlein Hall. Timothy O’Donnell, the Australian who won the company’s 2009 choreography competition and then came back to stay, offers the new Children of the Wall. Amy Seiwert, who directs her own Images company in San Francisco, will make her Milwaukee debut with Mozart Requiem.

Curtain Times: 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 11-14

Tickets are $30.75-99.25 at the Milwaukee Ballet ticket line, 414 902-2103, at the Milwaukee Ballet website and at the Marcus Center box office, 414 273-7206.
