Here’s a little information provided to me about the show:
The Ruth Page Civic Ballet is proud to present its annual production of The Nutcracker this holiday season.
Central to the Civic’s performance schedule is their annual presentation of The Nutcracker, the popular recreation of the beloved holiday classic. Originally presented in the Arie Crown Theater from 1965 to 1997, the Ruth Page Civic Ballet’s performance recreates Ruth Page’s original full-length staging. Exquisite dancing, stunning costumes and magical settings in the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of the Sweets, these performances promise world-class entertainment and holiday joy for children of all ages.
Comprised of members of the Ruth Page Civic Ballet, guest artists, adult and child performers, and students of the Ruth Page School of Dance, The Nutcracker features a cast of over eighty performers.
Also joining the cast of The Nutcracker are special guest artists: Jennifer Goodman (Sugar Plum Fairy), Kathleen Darley (Snow Queen) and Tom Mattingly (Sugar Plum/Snow Cavalier).
Also available is “Tea with Clara,” a delightful tea party which patrons can enjoy with their favorite The Nutcracker characters from 3:15 – 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 7. Tickets, which include admission to either show, are $85 for adults and $50 for children under the age of 12.
