Timeless Nutcracker back at Red Deer College

Audiences can look forward to new surprises

The classic production The Nutcracker ballet is back again at Red Deer College in December.

“We’re so pleased to present The Nutcracker to the community, and audiences can look forward to all new surprises within the choreography and story this year,” says Tania Strader, Choreographer of The Nutcracker.

“Alex Macleod debuts as the Sugar Plum Fairy, and her performance will be a wonderful addition to the ballet.”

The Nutcracker is the timeless tale of a holiday party that descends into the realm of magic. Young Clara receives a nutcracker from her mysterious aunt and strange things begin to happen after everyone has turned in for the evening. Clara is guided through falling snow into the Land of Sweets, where rats and soldiers battle for victory and sweets from around the world dance in her honour. The Nutcracker ballet reminds us that there is still a little magic in all of our lives.

Performances will run on Friday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 17 at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., as well as Sunday, Dec. 18 at 1:30 p.m. The production will take place on the Mainstage in the Red Deer College Arts Centre.

Tickets are available for purchase through the Black Knight Inn and typically sell out quickly. Visit tickets.blackknightinn.ca or call 403-755-6626.
