This full-length modern version of the holiday classic is presented by Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre and features the highly-talented dancers of G2, the pre-professional company of GHDT. This version of The Nutcracker also features students from the Academy of Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre and other young local student dancers.
The Nutcracker follows the same overall story line as the original, but with a uniquely different twist. This magical updated version portrays Klara as a homeless orphan girl who discovers the true meaning of the season through the gift and the giving spirit of a homeless man. This magical staging of The Nutcracker will add some joy and cheer to your holiday season.
