NJ Youth Ballet's THE NUTCRACKER Dances into Kelsey Theatre This Weekend
Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre caps off the holiday season with a festive annual treat. The New Jersey Youth Ballet presents its original hour-long, narrated adaptation of THE NUTCRACKER ballet tonight, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 19 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Dancers in full costume will perform to the famous Tchaikovsky score as they transport audiences to The Land of the Sweets. According to NJ Youth Ballet, this abridged version of The Nutcracker is one that even the youngest children can enjoy. The ballet is danced almost entirely by children and teens. Dolls and sweets come to life, mice and toy soldiers do battle, and snowflakes dance in a beautiful snow covered forest.
Tickets are $16 for adults, and $14 for seniors, students and children. They may be purchased by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333 or ordered online at www.kelseytheatre.net. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The theater is wheelchair accessible. Free parking is available next to the theater.
