Ballet Theatre of Scranton and Marywood University will present their 37th annual performances of The Nutcracker Dec. 26 through 28 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. each day. This original Scranton production was first presented by the Company's founder Constance Reynolds in 1976, and continues under the direction of Joanne Arduino, Artistic Director.

Since its first presentation, more than 350,000 citizens from within a 60- mile radius, have enjoyed the production and have made it a part of their holiday week. Ballet Theatre of Scranton has maintained the free production through the dedication of its Board, Directors and Dancers and the generosity of local benefactors. More than 150 people are involved in the annual event including professional designers, technicians and guest artists.

The Nutcracker is a magical story told through ballet to the famous Tchaikovsky music. Toys coming to life, snow falling on dancing snowflakes and a 20- foot growing Christmas tree are just a few highlights of Ballet Theatre of Scranton's Nutcracker gift.

While there is no charge for tickets, reserved seat tickets are available at the Marywood box office (2300 Adams Avenue, Scranton) two hours prior to the each specific performance.
