Nutcracker ballet to be performed at Bryan’s Mounce Library
The Clara B. Mounce Public Library and Brazos Valley Performing Arts are joining together to present the 3rd Annual Story Time Ballet. Citizens of the Brazos Valley will be treated to one of the most famous ballets – the Nutcracker - when the library hosts the event twice on Thursday, December 15. The first performance will be at 5:00 p.m. and the second at 6:00 p.m. in the Mounce Library. Dancers will interpret the traditional Christmas story as the Children’s Librarian, Bobbee Pennington, narrates the story.
This popular production has been choreographed and directed by Diana Wilcox and assisted by Kristen Wilcox, Hannah Cisarik, and Katy Ellison.
There are 38 local dancers, ranging in ages from 8-18 years old, which will make the holiday story come alive. Angeles Keller will delight the audience as she dances on pointe as the Sugar Plum Fairy. Brittany Fojtik will grace the stage in the part of Clara. Other cast members will take the stage in full costume as snowflakes, soldiers and mice.
Auditions were held in October and the dancers have been preparing in rehearsals for the last 7 weeks. The 3rd Annual Story Time Ballet is completely free to the public.
