Educators

The Central Wisconsin School of Ballet would like to invite you and your students to our 2007 production of The Nutcracker on Friday, November 30, 2007 at 10:00am at the historic Grand Theatre in Wausau. Don't miss an opportunity to see "...one of the nation's nine most notable Nutcrackers. Cutest Mice: Wausau. Their little faces show under the fake snouts." - Laura Shapiro, Newsweek

The Nutcracker, a holiday classic about a young girl named Clara and her favorite Holiday. This year at the family's annual Holiday party, Clara receives a Nutcracker Doll from her mysterious and magical Godfather, Drosselmeier. After everyone has left and the family is asleep, Clara curiously slips downstairs to look at her Nutcracker doll. She eventually falls asleep, and with a little help from Drosselmeier's magic, her dream begins. She's suddenly woken by life-size mice and their leader, the evil Mouse King.

Suddenly, the Christmas tree grows to an enormous height and everything seems out of proportion. Soldiers appear, and behind them is the Nutcracker. The soldiers and mice go to battle, and after an exhausting exchange, the Nutcracker defeats the Mouse King and changes him into a handsome Nutcracker Prince.

The Nutcracker Prince takes Clara on a journey through the Land of the Snowflakes and Dreams where they are met by the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Court. Although Clara does not want to leave her Prince and the Land of the Snowflakes and Dreams, she awakens surrounded by her family and the most magical holiday spirit.
