Cornish Preparatory Dance Company at Cornish College of the Arts present the Nutcracker.  Students from age 6 to 18 bring this classic story to the stage with heart and a bit of humor.  The essence of the Nutcracker tradition is brought about in the telling of this story, giving students the opportunity to participate in a classical ballet with competence while at the same time honoring their particular talents.

This telling of the Nutcracker brings to life a charming party scene with occasional bits of humor, followed by an exhilarating battle scene revealing a growing tree, smoke, explosives and small scary mice. Act 1 closes with a serene yet invigorating dance in the Snow Scene. Act 2 begins with the steadfast Pages escorting you into The Land of Sweets and the many delightful divertissements performed for Clara. The evening finishes with Claras dream coming to a close with the help of her favourite friend, Drosselmeyer.  

Approximately 2 hours, including one intermission, our Nutcracker is appropriate for all ages.
All performances are held at the Cornish Playhouse at the Seattle Center, 201 Mercer Street, Seattle.
