The second-act character dances, in various "ethnic" flavors, were lively and full of variety. Kathleen Breen Combes flung herself into the luxurious backbends and spirals of Spanish.

The Chinese children twirled their umbrellas cleverly, and the audience went "Awwwww!" on cue in the Pastorale when five white lambs appeared in the care of two shepherdesses, and "Aah!" a moment later with the arrival of a naughty little black sheep. This flock upstaged the hardworking trio of James Whiteside, Heather Myers, and Megan Gray. Oh, and the marauding mice had cute pink ears, and their King (Mark Wax) was dressed like the Sultan in Sheherazade.
