The Nutcracker comes to life as our dance companies join together to enchant audiences of all ages at the annual production of ‘Scenes from the Nutcracker’. This Tchaikovsky holiday classic is abbreviated to an hour-long narrated show, specifically geared for young audiences. Children get to sit up close and are invited to meet and greet the characters after the performance.
The show, a Darien favorite since 2002, provides an appealing introduction to attending dance performances for the younger set. This year’s production features new dances, characters and colorful costumes, guaranteed to delight all audience members. The dances consist of members from the DAC dance department’s junior, senior and adult companies.
Performances will be held at the DAC Weatherstone Studio. Show times are December 10, 11 and 17 at 12 p.m. and 3 p.m., December 16 at 6 p.m. and December 18 at noon. Tickets are $10. Reservations are highly recommended, as performances sell out quickly for this popular annual tradition. Call the DAC box office at (203) 655-8683 or email Bonnie@darienarts.org for reservations.
