Nutcracker coming to Prairie Center in Schaumburg
- Photos (6)
The Schaumburg Dance Ensemble presents Tchaikovsky's timeless ballet, "The Nutcracker," for two weekends beginning Nov. 30 at the Schaumburg Prairie Center for the Arts.
Performances will be held Fridays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.
The production, featuring professional dancers along with area performers, has become a steadfast family holiday tradition at the Prairie Center.
"The costumes, scenery and choreography never fail to delight audiences, but it's the production's attention to the story that seems to provide the most dramatic impact," says the Prairie Center's Rob Pileckis.
Live narration provided by the magical toy-maker Drosselmeyer, whose gift of a nutcracker to a young girl at a Christmas gathering inspires a dream world of colorful characters, "instantly draws young audiences into the performance and keeps them entertained through the final bows," Pileckis added.
"The Nutcracker" is directed by Alberto Arias, Michele Leslie Holzman and Lisa Sheppard.
Tickets are $26 ($18 for students and seniors) and can be ordered online at prairiecenter.org or by calling (847) 895-3600. The Prairie Center for the Arts is at 201 Schaumburg Court, Schaumburg.
"The Nutcracker" is sponsored by the Daily Herald, Motorola Solutions Foundation and the Prairie Center Arts Foundation.
