Ballet Chesapeake will perform an abridged version of their complete professional staging of The Nutcracker ballet with intricate costumes and sets along with Tchaikovsky’s timeless score.
This version is child-friendly and includes live narration of the Nutcracker story to accompany dancers.
This special program serves to expose the very young to the wonder and enchantment of a ballet performance while teaching basic theater etiquette and table manners.
Following the performance, the children are led to a decorated tea party area for a formal tea of punch and snacks.
The dancers – still in costume – serve the tea while the Nutcracker interacts with the children.
Each child will have the chance for a photo with their favorite character and will leave with memories to last a lifetime!
