Cadance Academy’s 14th Nutcracker Sure to Warm Hearts
It’s hard to believe that this year marks the 14th year that Cadance Academy has brought its annual production of The Nutcracker to the Festival Theatre, and because of all of that experience putting on the show, you can be sure that it will be a performance that will fill you with holiday joy. Cadance Academy Director Gaea Jess is proud of how the show has evolved over the years. “It’s really amazing to be a part of this. Each year, there’s something new to see, whether it be new characters that are created to entertain the audience or new choreography to showcase the dancers. This year, we’ve decided to evolve to include an amazing Nutcracker Ball in the Grand Ballroom of the Cornwallis Inn on November 29 as a lead up to the performances!” The ball will be a fundraiser to maintain props and costumes used in The Nutcracker performance.
There are just two performances of The Nutcracker on Saturday, December 14 (7pm) and on December 15 (2pm) at the Festival Theatre in Wolfville. This year’s cast includes the debuts of local dancers Jackson Young as The Nutcracker Prince and Sophie Stokvis as Clara.
