About The Nutcracker: A traditional holiday party and a very typical sibling rivalry set the stage for an entertaining fantasy journey to the Land of Sweets. With a cast of nearly 60 children and teens, Footworks Youth Ballet’s 23rd production of The Nutcracker will dazzle audiences with its colorful costumes, professional sets and familiar musical score. In keeping with the mission of Footworks, student dancers perform in principal roles such as the Sugar Plum Fairy, giving young artists opportunities to perform at professional levels.
