BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) — The kids were treated to a real treat on Sunday afternoon as Ballet Brazos teamed up with the Brazos Valley Children’s Museum and Hotel Stella for The Nutcracker Storytime.
Ballet Brazos performs excerpts from the 11th annual Nutcracker ballet for families to help children cultivate an appreciation for the arts.
For Nutcracker story time, a special guest read the Nutcracker story while dancers performed scenes from the book.
After the show, the children had the opportunity to take photos taken with the Ballet Brazos dancers and ask questions about the show.
The Nutcracker Storytime is made possible in part by hotel tax revenue funded by the City of College Station through the Brazos Valley Arts Council.
Event organizers say storytime events are also a way to give back to the community through awareness.
There will be three more Nutcracker Storytime events before the end of the year.
Nutcracker story time at Lights On! in downtown Bryan on Friday, November 18 and Thursday, December 8 at the Clara B. Mounce Library in downtown Bryan, and Sunday, December 11 at the Larry J. Ringer Library in College Station. For more information on upcoming Nutcracker Story Hours Click here.
Ballet fans can experience The Nutcracker at Rudder Auditorium at Texas A&M on December 2-3.
This year marks the 11th annual production of The Nutcracker and will feature acclaimed ballet superstars Kathryn Morgan as our Sugar Plum Fairy and George Sanders as her rider. The cast includes dancers from professional ballet companies, guest artists from Texas and pre-professional artists from all over the Brazos Valley and, to add the perfect touch of whimsy, the first Celebrity Mother Ginger will be the one and only meteorologist in KBTX leader Shel Winkley during the 6:30 p.m. show on Saturday, December 3.
