The St. George Ballet Company in association with Westside Studio of Performing Arts, under the direction of Sheila Bailey, with assistants Bene' Arnold, Amber Shakespeare and Annica Wright has enjoyed putting on the annual production of The Nutcracker Ballet for 13 Christmas seasons in Southern Utah.  Many families have made attending The Nutcracker a part of their Christmas tradition. 

William F. Christensen presented the first full length production of The Nutcracker Ballet in the United States in 1944.  In kind of Bene` Arnold and Florence Christensen, the St. George Ballet Company has established his original choreography in Act I, scenes 1 & 2 as a part of their Nutcracker.  Grown-ups and children will delight in seeing the mice and soldiers in battle before Clara continues into the Snow Kingdom and the Land of the Sweets to visit the Sugar Plum Fairy.  Dancers from around the world entertain the Nutcracker Prince and Clara along with bringing smiles to the faces of all involved.
The cast features over 120 local dancers who will be sharing the stage with professional dancers Megan Thornton dancing Sugar Plum Fairy with Jacob Pringle her cavalier.  We welcome our own local master artist, Roy Fitzell playing Drosselmeyer, and Rhett Guter.

Following Saturday's matinee the children can attend Clara's Party, "A Magical Journey".  The party is held on stage meeting characters and cast, taking a trip through the Land of Sweets, sliding down the Mother Hubbard slide along with seeing behind the scenes operations of putting on the production. A craft and treat also make this a fun activity for all. Tickets for Clara's Party are $8.00.
