Journey to the Land of the Sweets in New Jersey Youth Ballet’s ‘The Nutcracker’ at MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre Dec. 16-18

11/30/16


Clara receives her beloved Nutcracker from Herr Drosselmeyer during the family's Christmas party.

Upon falling asleep, Clara is joined by a family of mice.


Clara and the Nutcracker, magically transformed into a prince, journey into the Land of Snow.

Then it's on to the Land of the Sweets ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy.

West Windsor, N.J. – No holiday season is quite as special without “The Nutcracker.”  Join Clara, the Nutcracker and the Sugar Plum Fairy for New Jersey Youth Ballet’s family adaptation of the timeless Tchaikovsky classic at Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Kelsey Theatre. Dates and show times for this magical performance are: Friday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 17 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 18 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Even the youngest theater goers will enjoy this fully-narrated, one-hour ballet set to the famous Tchaikovsky score.  It’s abridged and yet complete – with a large cast of dancers in beautiful costumes and scenery full of warmth and wonder.  At the conclusion of the show, children and parents are invited on stage to meet their favorite characters, who will be available to sign autographs. 

New Jersey Youth Ballet is based at the Dance Connection in Hillsborough, NJ, and was founded by David Kieffer, who has extensive experience as a dancer, choreographer and teacher.
