The Nutcracker

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of The Nutcracker at TJC. To celebrate this milestone, we will be performing at the UT Tyler Cowan Center with live orchestration from the East Texas Symphony Orchestra! Invited to join our cast of over 100 TJC and community performers will be two dancers with the world-famous Pennsylvania Ballet, to dance the roles of the Sugar Plum and her Cavalier.

In addition to two performances, one abbreviated school show will be performed for school-aged children and home-schooled students. These performances educate and enrich community members who may not otherwise get the opportunity to see live dance and music.  If your school is interested in this abbreviated performance please contact Carolyn Hanna at The Nutcracker is the perfect way to introduce young children to the power and beauty of classical music and dance!
