Saturday, December 14, 2019, 7:00 p.m.
It’s Christmas Eve and a mysterious gift sparks a wondrous adventure! Journey to a Land of Enchantment filled with swirling snowflakes, dancing dolls, soldiers, mice and more set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score with three scenes and 50+ dancers of all ages!
RiverStage Community Theatre and Strictly Ballet are pleased to join forces for our 2nd annual performance of A Lewisburg Victorian Nutcracker, just in time for the holidays. This one-act presentation of Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet tells the story of the young girl Clara Stahlbaum who receives a wooden nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve from her mysterious godfather. That night, after everyone else has gone to bed, Clara’s doll is transformed into a handsome prince and she finds herself whisked away on a magical adventure filled with brave soldiers, fearsome mice, dancing snowflakes and more.
The Nutcracker has become one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous compositions, and the story has enjoyed enormous popularity for over 50 years as it is performed by ballet companies all across North America during the Christmas season, and this production is inspired by the concept of ‘Community Nutcrackers,’ which have been performed in various towns and cities across the United States.
Please note: Tickets for ‘A Lewisburg Victorian Nutcracker’ will go on sale here at a later date, and are not part of the 2019-2020 season subscription package.
