Chehalem Valley Dance Academy announces its Nutcracker performances on Saturday, December 14th at 2:00 and 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 15th at 2:00 p.m. in the Newberg High School Auditorium.
The Nutcracker has become a classic holiday tradition, along with glittery outdoor lights and Christmas carols. So what distinguishes CVDA's Nutcracker production from all the others?
First of all, every dollar earned from admission supports local charities. This year Love, INC., Faith in Action, and F.I.S.H. will benefit from CVDA's Nutcracker. In the past three years we have raised over $21,000, directly impacting needy people in our community. This is a legacy we are committed to and very proud of.
When you attend CVDA's Nutcracker, not only will your money help the welfare of others, you'll be treated to a spectacular production. We partner with the Newberg High School Theater Department to create sets with professional and artistic elements you won't see in a typical "hometown" show.
We have the good fortune of working with a professional stage director who oversees all the minor prop details that add up to unforgettable! A magical set will transport the audience to a winter wonderland: snow falling, live flocked trees, sparkling lights...get ready to be wowed!
Approximately 70 dancers will participate in this year's Nutcracker. They auditioned in June and rehearsed all summer and fall, which means they're extremely well-prepared. The dancers will deliver the joy of live performance when they visit retirement facilities in Newberg on December 7th....yet another way we value community outreach.
Another distinction of CVDA's Nutcracker is our gorgeous costuming. You may notice Swarovski rhinestones and other embellishments that enhance the classic costumes. We have 2-3 volunteers who tailor costumes each year. We reuse most costumes, but we appreciate the Performing Company Booster Club that helps raise money to purchase costumes for particular characters.
Local businesses contribute to this fundraiser. Please call 503-537-3902 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us this year and enjoy a professional-level Nutcracker production that donates to local charities. It's the perfect way to get in the true holiday spirit!
Come feel the warmth, cheer, and generosity at CVDA's Nutcracker - we hope to see you!
