“The Nutcracker” Performance Dances Into Community Members’ Hearts*Photo Gallery*


By Traci Bishop

Artistic director Stephanie Richards and The Castle Valley Civic Ballet welcomed many to Mont Harmon Middle School last week to enjoy a traditional rendition of the well-known “Nutcracker” ballet. Though “The Nutcracker” had entertained locals for many years in the past, production of the show had ceased until Richards worked diligently to welcome it back five years ago.

Alongside a plethora of other talented roles, Brooklyn Johansen and Devin Harwood took center stage as the lead roles of Clara and the Nutcracker. For the small fee, the seats were packed on each night of the production (Dec. 6, 7 and 8). A showing was offered each night at 7:30 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 2:30 p.m.

The production of “The Nutcracker” was a classical way for the community and visitors to welcome in the Christmas spirit.
