The spectacular sight will visit Guild Hall's John Drew Theater on Friday, December 7 at 7 p.m., Saturday, December 8 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Sunday, December 9 at 2 p.m.

"Hampton Ballet Theatre School is beyond excited as we prepare for our 10th annual Nutcracker at the John Drew Theater in Guild Hall," Sara Jo Strickland, Director Hampton Ballet Theatre School, reflected. "It is a major accomplishment for the school, the dancers, the parents and the community."

Jillian Hear and Holiday Bovio will share the role of the Arabian Princess, accompanied by guest artist Nick Peregrino. Sharing the roles of Dew Drop Princess will be Beatrice DeGroot and Samantha Prince, accompanied by guest artist Josep Maria Monreal and the Snow Queen will be danced by Lauren Gabbard and Sedona Silvera, accompanied by Hudson Galardi-Troy. All dancers are Pro Student Level 7 at HBTS. Dancing the role of Sugar Plum Fairy will be Devon Friedman, also a Pro Student Level 7 at HBTS. Guest artist James Stevko will take on the role of Cavalier.

The ballet, which is choreographed by Strickland, includes beautiful costumes designed and hand sewn by Yuka Silvera and lighting design by Sebastian Paczynski.

"HBTS has had the support of many to reach this milestone and for that, we are very humbled and grateful," Strickland added.

Advance ticket prices range from $15 to $45 and day of performance ticket prices range from $20 to $50, depending on the designated section.
