The Valley School Drama Program is pleased to present The Nutcracker for three nights only: Nov. 7, 8, and 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the multipurpose room. “This production adds splendid lyrics to a simplified version of Tchaikovsky’s famous score,” said Director, Theresa Carr. “We’re creating a unique version of The Nutcracker that captures the magic and fantasy of the original ballet.”
On Christmas Eve, Marie is presented with an unusual gift, a nutcracker. That night, she is awakened by a band of renegade mice, led by the evil Mouse King. The night gets stranger when the Nutcracker, a ballerina, Feline Legation, Mistress Clara and other toys show up to battle the rodents. The heroes travel together to the Land of Toys to rescue Princess Pirlipat from the wicked Mouse Queen. You’ll have to wait and see if the Nutcracker and Princess are reunited, if the curse is broken, or if Marie ever finds her way home to celebrate Christmas with her family.
Tickets are $5 for adults, $2 for students, and children ages 0-5 will receive free admission. Mark your calendars!
