    Event Description:

    Raue Center For The Arts is excited to announce Berkshire Ballet Theatre will present a newly updated version of “The Nutcracker” Ballet on December 16-17, 2017

     The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition performed at the Raue Center for the Arts in beautiful downtown Crystal Lake.  Join us with Clara on her fairy-tale adventure meeting the brave Nutcracker, the evil Mouse Queen, the frozen Snow Queen and of course the magical Sugar Plum Fairy and all of her friends in the Land of the Sweets.  From dancing to acting, tumbling, and professional guest artists, this is a show for everyone to enjoy!
    Performed by the Summers Academy of Dance & Berkshire Ballet Theatre Dance Company Members.  Choreographed by our very talented Artistic Director, Courtney Petrocci and her husband, Marc Petrocci, both former dance professionals and lead artists with the Milwaukee Ballet .

    This spectacular production involves 134 costumes, over 120 performers from Berkshire Ballet Theatre and Summers Academy of Dance, 41 pairs of pointe shoes, 25 pounds of wintery snow, 2 local personalities from Williams Street Repertory, and of course, 1 very special Nutcracker! These elements come together to create a truly enchanting journey through ETA Hoffman’s classic narrative of “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.”
