In the spirit of the holiday season, the St. Paul’s School Ballet Company (SPSBC) will present The Nutcracker: Act II. Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Dec. 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 14, at 2 p.m. in Memorial Hall on the school’s Concord campus.
This abridged version of The Nutcracker is free of charge and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Each show will last approximately one hour and all ages are welcome.
Although not required for admission, SPSBC invites guests to bring toy donations for holiday distribution to local children through Concord charitable organizations. Donated toys should not exceed $25 in value and should be unwrapped.
The Nutcracker: Act II, with music by Tchaikovsky, will include “Snow,” “Arabian,” “Waltz of the Flowers” and “Marzipan,” among other well-known favorites.
All members of SPSBC will perform. SPS Director of Dance Jennifer Howard calls the performance a “wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season” and “invites all to join the SPSBC on this enchanted journey.”
