The Nutcracker December 13th at 2:00 pm & December 14th at 3:00 pm



This highly acclaimed production is under the direction of Artistic Director Laura D. Conaway, and is known for its highly trained dancers, colorful costumes, as well as creative and exciting storytelling through Ms. Conaway’s eye for detail. She loves to provide an experience the dancers love to perform, and thus the audiences loves to see.

The story of The Nutcracker Ballet begins with a Christmas party, a special gift of a nutcracker, and a magical dream by a girl named Clara. After an exciting battle with the terrible Mouse King, Clara and her Nutcracker Prince begin their enchanted journey through a snowy forest to the Land of the Sweets, where they are greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her friends from around the world.
