MARIETTA - A not to be missed holiday tradition is back to delight audiences of all ages. The Nutcracker presented by Georgia Metropolitan Dance Theatre, Thanksgiving weekend. Immerse yourself in the magical tale of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince on a journey through the delectable Kingdom of Sweets with the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Audiences will enjoy the gorgeous sets, updated costumes, magical special effects, and original choreography set to Tchaïkovsky’s timeless music. Prepare to be thrilled by exquisite solo performances from youth company dancers. The Nutcracker includes performances from our ten high school seniors in lead roles and the full company of over 120 local dancers, ranging in age from seven to eighteen, who train at Georgia Dance Conservatory on the Marietta Square.
Professional dancers D Patton White as Godfather Drosselmeyer and Raul Peinado as the Cavalier join our cast. We are pleased to welcome back former company dancers, Scott Reed and Michael Duncan, returning to perform from Cincinnati Ballet's Professional Training program.
