People are being invited to celebrate the Christmas season with Masha and the Nutcracker at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts.
The ballet follows the story of a young girl as she is gifted a Nutcracker on Christmas Eve.
With the Nutcracker by her side, Masha battles the evil Mouse Queen, dances through a snowstorm, and dreams of dancing sweets from an array of countries.
This year’s production features dancers from Black Swamp Fine Arts School’s Pre-Professional Company, Resident Artists, and Enrichment Dance Program.
There will be three shows on Saturday, December 17th, at 1, 3, and 7 p.m.
MCPA says the toddler-friendly performance at 1 p.m. is adapted from the original production but with their littlest friends in mind. The cast will perform a shortened version, approximately 30 minutes.
