Joffrey Ballet presents ewly reimagined holiday classic The Nutcracker

This Week In Theater The Nutcracker

As the artistic director, choreographer and wrangler of Sugar Plum Fairies since the company's first performance almost 20 years ago, Bishop is a man with a plan-and a vision.

"An American Nutcracker is a fresh take on the holiday tradition and GLBC is proud to showcase the talents of over 35 dancers, with an ensemble of almost 80 performers from our community", said Jim McEwan, artistic director of GLBC.

For more than 25 years, artistic director Shelly Svodoba of the Chamber Ballet of Corvallis and Regional School of Ballet, and community members have presented the Corvallis community "Nutcracker".

"Ms. Howard looks at it over four years and what roles you can do to push you the most", Dienes said. For other dancers from our local community who are at least seven years of age, they hold a local audition for them. "The audience will be pleased with the quality of the production and the talents of area dancers as well as the professional guest artists".

Lucas Gomez-Doyle and Phoebe Lummis, who plays the role of Sugar Plum Fairy, practice their dance during a rehearsal last week for the St. Paul's School Ballet Company's performances of The Nutcracker Act II. Refreshments are served by dancers.

Friday and Saturday both performances will be at 7:00 p.m.

Washingtonville High School is located on West Main Street in Washingtonville. Tickets: $8 at the door or advance at Burst's sweets.

Notable dancers: Heather Hill and her husband, Brandon, often perform as the Nutcracker and Mouse King, who have a fight scene. This battle usually gets laughs from fellow dancers. But, overall, why mess with a good thing? As Ballet Austin's "The Nutcracker" kicks off its 55th season on December 8, patrons will gather here to watch dancers bring a magical world of rat kings and sugar plum fairies to life. It is a free event.

Why you should go: "There are so many different "Nutcracker" performances that entertained countless families each holiday season for years around the world". "I want to make sure it's magical for them and for the audience".

The ballet will be performed in Symphony Hall at the DECC on Friday, December 8, Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10.

Don't forget: Can't get enough "Nutcracker" from these two productions? On Sunday the performance will be a matinee at 2:00 p.m.
