The Nutcracker opens tomorrow at Clowes Hall, 7:30 pm! I’m currently watching the dancers in Act II perform one last dress rehearsal in preparation for Butler Ballet‘s show tomorrow, and everyone looks great. I love watching the process of a program coming together, knowing all the individual struggles and seeing my friends overcome problem areas and grow ever more exacting. Press lifts which might not have worked in October sail into the air without a hitch now, and we are no longer satisfied with what seemed a good run a month ago.
Basically, I’m very proud of everybody, and you should come see the performances this weekend. Show times are:
- Thursday, Dec 1, 7:30 pm
- Friday, Dec 2, 8 pm
- Saturday, Dec 3, 2 pm
- Saturday, Dec 3, 8 pm
- Sunday, Dec 4, 2 pm
It’s not too late to buy tickets! (Especially if you didn’t win one at the Apartment Village’s Bingo Night.)
