Performed by the Dance Theatre in Westchester ballet troupe, “The Colonial Nutcracker” comes to the stage at Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts on Dec. 11 at 2 pm.
This version of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s delightful ballet — based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s tale of “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” — is set in colonial Yorktown. A holiday favorite fit for children ages 4 and up and their families, the show takes audiences on a magical journey with Clara to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Mouse King and of course, the heroic Nutcracker, who turns into a prince. Tickets are $7.
