The Nutcracker is a classic Holiday tale that features the unique talents of our dancers, musicians, actors, and artists. Join us for the inaugural production of The Nutcracker in the beautiful Fuquay-Varina Arts Center! Become part of the magic and support the arts and local talent of Southern Wake County with those who express their love for performance by sharing it with others. Though this production we will discover that the power of the Nutcracker isn’t just a fairytale of love, loyalty and courage. Students and performers from local dance studios, schools, and drama programs are encouraged to enroll! Beginner through Advanced levels are welcome! Auditions will be held for placement in the ensemble and lead roles. The nutcracker is traditionally a ballet, however we will be including other dance disciplines such as Contemporary, K Pop (Hip Hop), and addition to vocalists and actors!
