ASTORIA — The Little Ballet Theatre’s “Nutcracker” will be staged at the Astoria High School Auditorium with two performances on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and one performance on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 2 p.m.
A cast of 80 dancers, a 55-piece orchestra conducted by Cory Pedersen and a 12-voice choir fuel this community treasure that starts the holiday season.
The production has soldiers battling with the King Mouse and his army of mice, a Kingdom of Snow, a fairy tale castle, where many performers charm young Clara as she visits the Kingdom of Sweets, topped by a grande pas de deux of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.
Tickets are available online through the Liberty Theatre website and at the Liberty Box Office in Astoria. General admission tickets are available at Maddox Dance Studio in Warrenton, and at the Astoria High School Auditorium one hour before each performance.
