Ballet Theatre’s Nutcracker Sparkles With Holiday Cheer

| November 23, 2011 | 0 Comments
Ballet Theatre of Maryland (BTM), the state’s premier professional ballet company, will be presenting the holiday classic, The Nutcracker, for six performances over two weekends this December at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.
Come see the show the Baltimore Sun calls “bright, joyous and imaginatively witty.” Embark on a journey with the young heroine Clara, played by BTM dancers Kathryn Carlson, Nicole (Seitz) Kelsch and Erica Wong, as she helps her beloved Nutcracker Prince (Joshua Burnham and Brian Walker) defeat the evil Rat Queen to visit the Land of Sweets. Over 40 area dance students will join BTM’s professional dancers on stage in this year’s performances.
Performances will be held:
  • Saturday, December 10th at 7:00pm
  • Sunday, December 11th at 1:00pm and 4:30pm
  • Saturday, December 17th at 7:00pm
  • Sunday, December 18th at 1:00pm and 4:30pm
BTM will again be offering free Sugar Plum parties for patrons of the Sunday matinees. These parties, which will feature treats and appearances by Santa Claus and the BTM dancers, occur one hour prior to show time (noon and 3:30pm).
Tickets are $45 for adults (including all handling fees), with discounts available for seniors, students and children and are available through Maryland Hall’s box office at 410.280.5640 or mdhallarts.org. More information about the show is available online at www.balletmaryland.org.
