Community members from Carbon and Emery counties came together to form Castle Valley Civic Ballet. For the past several months, members have been preparing for the company’s first ever presentation of “The Nutcracker.” Thursday night, the first running of the ballet took place at Carbon High.
The production follows a young girl, Clara, along with her toy nutcracker through a magical winter journey. Characters come to life on stage thanks to the artistic direction of Stephanie Richards, Castle Valley Civic Ballet director.
The Christmas classic will be presented Dec. 12 and 13 beginning at 7:30 p.m. nightly at the Carbon High auditorium.
