Ballet Brazos' 7th annual production of The Nutcracker features professional dancers, guest artists from Texas, and pre-professional performers from across the Brazos Valley. Behind the scenes, ballet instructors representing many area schools work with the dancers for months to rehearse and perfect choreography. Our production features beautiful costumes, sets, and scenery. Under the direction of Suzanne Moreau and Diana Wilcox, and guided by Artistic Advisor Katy Ellison, the dancers of Ballet Brazos bring you the ballet world's time-honored holiday tradition that brings together young and old for an evening of magic and enchantment. Come travel to the Land of the Sweets and celebrate the magic with us!

CAST
 
 Dew Drop Fairy_Block.jpg
This year marks Ballet Brazos' 7th Annual Nutcracker Ballet, proof that collaboration is a wonderful way to allow dancers, teachers, and audiences to experience the wonder of classical ballet. Dancers for our productions are cast by auditions open to the entire Bryan-College Station community and by guest professional ballet dancers.
 
 
 
 

Note from the Artistic Advisor
 
 
Congratulations to the more than 100 performers who have been cast in the 7th annual Ballet Brazos production of The Nutcracker! We are excited to welcome you to the Ballet Brazos family, and we look forward to the time we'll spend together in rehearsals and on the stage.
 
 
Performing in The Nutcracker is a rite of passage for ballet dancers everywhere. Many a ballet career has been launched as a tiny mouse scampers on stage past a growing Christmas tree and thinks, "This is what I want to do! There has never been a moment more magical than this!"
 
 
It is our hope that in the coming months, you will find your technique improving through the rehearsal process, that you will make new friendships, and develop a life-long desire to be a part of the performing arts. But most of all, we hope that when you step onto the stage in December, you feel the rush that so many before you have felt, and think, "There has never been a moment more magical than this!"
 
 
With admiration,
Miss Katy (former Mouse, Sugar Plum Fairy, and everything in between)
