Another Successful Nutcracker

Thank you to everyone who attended our 5th annual production of the Nutcracker this past weekend! We are extremely proud of our student cast members, and we think the show was even better than last year.

And, as icing to an already delicious gingerbread-y cake, we sold more tickets than ever before, achieving an 87% capacity!

Thank you for showing up and supporting our students as they learn about performance and professionalism.
