A holiday tradition since 1974, BalletMet’s “The Nutcracker” will run Dec. 13-28 at the historic Ohio Theatre in Columbus. Four young Madison County residents will be among the performers.
The tale of the imaginative Clara, the nutcracker who turns into a prince, the Mouse King, and the Sugarplum Fairy features a large cast, including BalletMet’s professional dancers and 190 students from the BalletMet Academy–the largest class of students ever to perform in “The Nutcracker.”
Phoebe Congleton, Vivian Draper and Lauren Hart, all of London, and Lucía Guardia Pérez of Galloway are among the Academy students who will perform.
Each performance will feature more than 122 characters onstage, including Academy students in the roles of pages, party children, mice and soldiers.
More than 30,000 people came to see BalletMet’s “Nutcracker” in 2018.
