Special Performance of The Nutcracker for area 5th grade students

Each December, the Mid-Columbia Ballet (MCB) performs a special performance of The Nutcracker for local 5th grade students. Each performance is about 90 minutes long with a brief "working" intermission designed to keep the children's attention.  The curtains are opened and the children have the opportunity to observe the scene change and backstage activities accompanied by a narrative provided by the Stage Manager or Artistic Director.

Monday December 15, 2014 (performances at 9:30 am and 12:00 pm)
