The department of Theatre and Dance  presents the 26th annual Nutcracker Ballet 

Join us at Russell Auditorium December 9 and 10th at 7 PM, and 11th at 2 PM for the 26th annual Georgia College Nutcracker ballet! Presented by the department of Theatre and Dance, over 200 dancers ages three through adult will delight in this holiday tradition! The beloved classic ballet will feature Georgia College students Alicia Zarker and Katie Payne, alternating as the Sugar Plum Fairy, and David Bandy as the Cavalier.  Their choreography is the original 1892 Russian choreography by Lev Ivanov.
 

 Jones County high school student Addison Davis will portray the heroine, Clara.  She has been in the GC Dance program since age 3. Brenna Miller, longtime GC dancer, freshman at GMC college, will portray the Prince. David is also portraying the evil Mouse King, and  Kelly Holland is the Mouse Queen. The Snow Queen, dancing with 21 snowflakes is GC junior, Nicole Snyder. The Dew Drop Fairy, dancing in the Waltz of the Flowers, is GMC Prep senior Kylah Chatman, who has danced in the GC Community Dance Program since age 3.  
 

The lavish production features beautiful hand painted sets, special effects, spectacular costumes, magic tricks, and a huge smoking Dragon.  The award winning GC Cheerleaders will portray the tumbling Russian dancers, a long time tradition. New this year are new fog machines, many new jeweled tutus from China, and all new choreography.  Directed by GC Director of Dance and Senior Dance Lecturer Natalie King.  The Friday morning school performance is sold out. You can purchase tickets for all of the remaining performances at  tickets.GCSU.edu.
