Tickets are available at the door and are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and children.

Cara Salerno, a Sophomore at Chartiers Valley, will portray the part of Clara while David Keller, who attends Brentwood High School, will be the Nutcracker Prince who comes to life and takes Clara to the Candy Kingdom. Elizabeth Scalise, a Senior at Chartiers Valley will dance the role of Dew Drop Fairy. Over 60 dancers from many community dance schools ranging in age from 5 – adult round out the cast of swirling snowflakes and candy flowers.
