Children are Welcome at Boone’s Only Nutcracker Ballet Performance

Nutcracker Boone NC

‘Tis the Season, yet again! Not only the Christmas holiday season, but Nutcracker Ballet season as well! ┬áDecember 9-11, hundreds of children and adults from Studio K Youth Ballet take the stage at Farthing Auditorium on the ASU Campus. Snowflakes twirl, soldier dolls leap, and the Sugar Plum Fairy dazzles the audience.

The great thing about this presentation of the Nutcracker Ballet is that children of all ages are welcome. “Hundreds of children will grace the stage, and we hope that many children will fill the audience as well.” Ballet director Cay Harkins said. “I’ve had parents tell me their toddlers, and even infants, were mesmerized throughout the whole performance. And if the kids are inspired to dance in the aisles, that’s OK too.”

So don’t worry about shushing your kids when they gasp at the magic of the Nutcracker, as he transforms into the Prince. ┬áJust bring the whole family and be prepared to have a lot of fun. Watch this video for a preview of what you’ll see.

Showtimes are as follows:

  • Friday, December 9 at 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, December 10 at 7:00 PM
  • Sunday, December 11 at 3:00 PM
