Young Clara once again invites us inside her imagination as the High Point Ballet performs her vivid, dream-induced adventures, precipitated after receipt of a very mysterious gift from her Godfather. The Nutcracker will be performed at the High Point Theatre Dec. 21-23. Shows are nightly at 7:30 pm. A special presentation of the Land of the Sweets, geared specifically for younger audience members, will be performed on Friday, Dec. 23 at 2 p.m.

Swirling with heroic toy soldiers, sword-fighting mice and the glittering Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, the classic ballet will be presented through the choreography of award-winning Artistic Director Gary Taylor; award-winning set designer Howard Jones; lighting by Craig Stelzenmueller, and original costumes designed by Executive Director-Founder Rita Taylor.

High Point Ballet is a nonprofit community service organization dedicated to the practice and appreciation of the performing arts. Its educational services and community outreach programs include a student performance series for elementary, middle, and high school students. High Point Ballet is a funded affiliate of the High Point Arts Council.

“Appropriate for all ages, this show will enchant, enthrall and amaze the audience through the groups’ artistry, set design, costumes and overall creative expression,” says High Point Theatre Director David Briggs. “The experience is sure to put everyone into the Holiday spirit and leave a lasting impression for years to come!”

Tickets are $15-$35, available by calling the theater box office at 336-887-3001 or online at www.highpointtheatre.com.
