The Nutcracker at Carnegie Performing Arts Center

An old fashioned holiday theme is the offering for this year's Nutcracker as presented by the Carnegie Performing Arts Center.   The Nutcracker is being performed for two weekends, beginning on Friday, December 9, and ending on Sunday, December 18.  Performances will be held at the renovated Andrew Carnegie Music Hall, 300 Beechwood Avenue in Carnegie.  Performances of the Nutcracker will be at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays.  Tickets are available at the door and are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and children. 

Kathleen Walter, a senior at CAPA, will dance the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy, and Gabrielle Prevade, a senior at West Allegheny, will dance the Queen of the Snow.  Allison Vicker, a freshman at Montour High School, will portray the part of Clara, while Gavin Helbig of Carnegie, will be her Nutcracker Prince who comes to life and takes Clara to the Candy Kingdom.  Jamie Pachuta who attends Pittsburgh Obama will dance the role of Dew Drop Fairy while Jeremy Eiben of Point Park University will dance the Sugar Plum Cavalier. 

Over 60 dancers from many community dance schools ranging in age from 5 – adult round out the cast of swirling snowflakes and candy flowers.   Monica Ryan, choreographer and director of the Carnegie Performing Arts Center is celebrating the forty first anniversary production of The Nutcracker. As in the past, there will be a raffle and Chinese Auction during the intermissions of the three acts of The Nutcracker.
