100 dancers perform The Nutcracker

On Dec. 8, join the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance as it presents the magic of The Nutcracker at Mission’s Clarke Foundation Theatre.

Ballet students from Abbotsford, Mission, Langley, Chilliwack, Maple Ridge, Agassiz and Harrison join a cast of more than 100 dancers. Included in the cast are professional guest artists Reid Colton and Angel Jutzi. This is the fifth annual presentation of John C. Carney’s choreography of The Nutcracker.

Audience members can enjoy the humour of the Stahlbaum’s festive party, then follow Clara in her dream as she witnesses the battle between rats and soldiers, travels through the mystical snow and across the serene ocean to the Kingdom of Sweets.

Meet the Sugar Plum Fairy and Nutcracker Prince and all of Clara’s new friends who entertain the audience with dances of Chinese, Candy Cane, Russian, Arabian, Smarties, Spanish and Flowers.

This is a winter classic for the whole family. Performances take place Dec. 8 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Clarke Theatre (33700 Prentis Ave., Mission). Tickets are $26 for adults, $22 for seniors, $20 for students and $16 for children. Tickets are available online at www.fvad.ca or from the FVAD Office (604-826-0097) at 33219 1st Avenue, Mission.
