Dec. 3 - Eastern Shore Ballet Theatre

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - The Eastern Shore Ballet Theatre, Inc. will present their 23nd annual performance of the "Nutcracker" on Saturday, December 7th at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 8th at 2:00 p.m. in the Wicomico High School Auditorium in Salisbury, Maryland.

A beloved holiday classic, the "Nutcracker" has become a Christmas tradition for adults and children of all ages, and is performed thousands of times all over the world every year.  The story follows the adventures of Clara, a young girl who is given a Nutcracker on Christmas Eve, as a special gift from her mysterious godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer, a skilled toy maker who is always full of surprises.  Her envious brother, Fritz, grabs the Nutcracker and promptly breaks it. Clara, heartbroken, watches as Herr Drosselmeyer quickly repairs the Nutcracker with a scarf he magically pulls out of the air.  After falling asleep on Christmas Eve, Clara is awakened by a now-human Nutcracker.  Along with the Toy Soldiers, they do battle with the terrible Mouse King and his Mouse Army.  Then Clara and the Nutcracker Prince go on a magical adventure through the Snow Forest, where snowflakes and icicles turn into dancing maidens, to the Land of Sweets, where they are greeted by the Sugar Plum Fairy and Clara is treated like royalty. Chocolates, candy canes, coffee, tea and gingerbread cookies all dance in her honor.  Set to the gorgeous music of Tchaikovsky, this ballet never fails to delight everyone who sees it.

Ticket prices are $15.00 for adults, $12.00 for students and seniors, or $50.00 for a family of 4.  Tickets can be ordered by phone at 443-358-2300, or purchased at Dance Wear, Etc, in the Court Plaza, 1506 S. Salisbury Blvd in Salisbury, the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council office, 104A Poplar Hill Ave in downtown Salisbury, or Bank of Delmarva locations.
