THE NUTCRACKER

December 3 at 7 p.m.

It wouldn't be Christmas without the enchanting dance story of a little girl and her Nutcracker Prince, who overcome the malevolent Mouse King to journey to a fantastical Land of Sweets. However, Armour Dance Theatre's The Nutcracker ballet is more than a holiday tradition with familiar music. This full-scale production with dazzling costumed characters and, of course, Tchaikovsky's beautiful score, is a magnificent display of true commitment to the study and performance of dance by the 140 students from all five Armour Dance Theatre sites that comprise this year's cast, in addition to world-class guest star dancers.
