Photography Question

Using a Pentax SF10

I plan on using a Pentax SF10 with a 28-80 mm lens tomorrow evening at my daughter's ballet recital. Last year I used my Olympus Camedia C-730 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera with 10X opital zoom, however was not pleased with the results of low lighting and a delay of the shutter speed.
I'm really not sure if I should use the
Pentax's Programmed AE mode which selects the best combination of aperture and shutter speed OR should I maually select a desired shutter speed?
What shutter speed and aperture should I choose? Also I have some film: 3 rolls of FUJICOLOR SUPERIA X-TRA 800 and 1 FUJICOLOR 400.
Please advise as how I should photograph my daughter's ballet. It will be at a local High School with low lighting and I'll probably sit abot 10-12 rows back. PLEASE.......
