The Dance Factory presents a fully costumed production of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker on Saturday December 9th at 7pm and Sunday December 10th at 2pm. Tickets are $13 for adults and $8 for students. Both performances are at Springfield High School and will benefit the Springfield High School Drama Club.
Please join us for this beautiful classical ballet featuring young dancers from all over southern Vermont and New Hampshire. The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara Staulbaum and the magical Nutcracker she is given from her Uncle Drosselmeyer. The Dance Factory’s production features dancing dolls, a fierce Mouse King, a glorious scene of dancing snowflakes led by the Snow Queen, and a visit to the Kingdom of sweets ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring dances from around the world.
Students dance all the rolls in The Dance Factory’s production of The Nutcracker, including the principal roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Snow Queen. Many dancers begin in Mother Goose and continue performing in various roles throughout their childhood. This will be the 25th year The Dance Factory has presented The Nutcracker. Originally choreographed by Susan Hagan, this year’s production will be directed by Ashley Hensel-Browning and will feature new and old choreography from productions past. Do not miss this magical production!
Seating is general admission. Tickets available at the door, and for advance purchase at Phoenix Misty Valley Books in Chester, Tina's Hallmark and Woodbury's Florist in Springfield.
