Four local residents have been cast in the highly anticipated production of Northeast Youth Ballet’s The Nutcracker . Dancers are cast in the roles of cherubs and lambs.
Northeast Youth Ballet’s The Nutcracker is the enchanting journey of a young girl named Clara in 1835’s Germany who embarks on a journey through a winter wonderland to a palace of sugary sweets. Featuring the talents of more than 150 dancers who auditioned from the Greater Boston area, along with international guest artists hailing from France, China, Australia, Columbia, and New York, the production will return to the J. Everett Collins Center for the Performing Arts in Andover, MA. Exquisite dancing, beautiful costumes, lavish sets, with Tchaikovsky's brilliant score guarantee a magical holiday experience
