Rehearsing the pas de deux are Adrian Cross as the Sugar Plum Fairy and Kristian Loewen as The Prince.

Timeless Nutcracker offered by Creative Outlet

The Nutcracker cast has been rehearsing for weeks in Chilliwack, filling every moment with the grace and poise for the seasonal ballet.

Creative Outlet dancers are poised to present their 3rd annual production of A Nutcracker Ballet.

A cast of over 20 dancers and cast members have been rehearsing for weeks to bring their story life, filling every moment with the grace and poise that it deserves.

The story of the Nutcracker is timeless, its telling part of family holiday traditions around the world. And while this version is condensed to ensure an enjoyable holiday treat for everyone, it maintains all the beloved characters and Tchaikovsky’s familiar melodies.

Emma Lee plays beloved little Clara, Nicholas Paddon her mischievous brother Fritz, Kristian Loewen is Uncle Drosselmeire the toy maker and Adrian Cross the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy. Dancers transform from party guests into elegant snowflakes, and bring the waltz of the flowers, majestic Arabians and fun loving Chinese vignettes to life. Nigel Floyd reprises his role as the narrator, guiding the audience through Clara’s dream so each and every glorious detail of the journey can be enjoyed.

The full length ballet of The Nutcracker is an incredible piece of art — the dancing, choreography, sets and costumes. Creative Outlet has worked hard to maintain the beauty and elegance of the ballet while tailoring the length, and ticket price, to suit families… perhaps encouraging a new family holiday tradition in your home, and inspiring a new generation of dancers and storytellers and musicians!

A Nutcracker Ballet runs at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday Nov. 20. Tickets are available at the Centre Box Office 604-391-7469 or online www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.
