There are only 4 shows left of Tacoma City Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker” held annually at Downtown Tacoma’s Pantages Theater. The only performance in the area to follow the story, scenic design, costuming and choreography as it was originally created by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov accompanied by Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky’s original score performed by Northwest Sinfonietta.
You can also support Toys for Tots at the show:
For 2011, Tacoma City Ballet is a proud sponsor of Toys for Tots. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community. The Toys for Tots Program delivers, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. Please bring your donation of a new, unwrapped toy to any performance of The Nutcracker.
