WOLFEBORO FALLS — Hailed by New Hampshire Magazine in 2018 as one of their Top 10 things to do in New Hampshire in December, Northeastern Ballet Theatre’s “The Nutcracker” is the original rendition of this holiday classic ballet. Come along with Clara and her Nutcracker Prince on their journey!
This year’s production will carry you into the Silberhaus’ home and through the kingdom of snow into the Land of the Sweets with lush state-of-the-art projection backdrops! Also featured is a brand-new Mother Ginger thanks to the fundraising efforts of two Wolfeboro moms, Melody Madzar and Crystal Simpson, who helped to raise the $3,000 needed in just 10 days! Designed and created by local artists, don’t miss the polychinelles, or little clowns, as they emerge from Mother Ginger’s skirt. How many can you count?
Northeastern Ballet Theatre features an all-New Hampshire cast, including professional dancers Assaf Benchetrit, Assistant Professor of Dance at UNH and John Ling, head of the dance department at Brewster Academy. Don't miss this year's production on Sat., December 7 at 7:00 p.m. and Sun., December 8 at 2:00 p.m. at Dover High School, Dover, and Sun., December 15 at 2:00 p.m. at the Kingswood Arts Center, Wolfeboro.
