Ballets with a Twist perform "Holy Water" from "Cocktail Hour: The Show."

New York City dance company Ballets with a Twist will perform at Bucks County Playhouse over the weekend of April 8-10. Guests are invited to grab cocktails or mocktails to watch the ballet "Cocktail Hour: The Show." 

The performance is the company's signature piece and combines old Hollywood glamour with 21st century pop. The show also does something unique by creating personas for cocktails like the Manhattan, mai tai and martini.

During the "Martini" performance, guests will watch as a dancer turns into a super spy who dodges bullets. Bucks County Playhouse will also get to see a new choreographed piece,"Singapore Sling," which will premiere at the theater.

Ballets with a Twist is known for blending high art with entertainment.

There will be four performances in total over the weekend. The Friday show begins at 8 p.m., the Saturday performances are scheduled for 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., and the Sunday show will be at 2 p.m.
