Twenty local residents cast in the highly anticipated production.
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 100 dancers who auditioned from the Greater Boston area, the full-length production will return to the J. Everett Collins Center for the Performing Arts in Andover, MA after a hiatus caused by the pandemic. Exquisite dancing, beautiful costumes, and lavish sets, with Tchaikovsky’s brilliant score, guarantee a magical holiday experience.
