The Nutcracker Ballet Planning Meeting

It is confirmed that an annual full production of the perennial Christmas favourite The Nutcracker will be produced here on the Sunshine Coast this coming Christmas.

Special free standing sets and scenic elements have been designed to local theatre specifications. The two act production (3 scenes) will feature local artists as well as a roster of guest artists from off the coast.

Negotiations are taking place with the costume department of the Boston Ballet to supply the multitude of specialized costumes required by this annual favourite.

A meeting will be held at the Heritage Playhouse on Sunday February 12th from 10:00 – 12:00. This meeting is open to all interested parties that would like to hear and learn more about this exciting production.

This will be an annual community event that will hopefully attract supporters and volunteers to ensure a smooth running production. Those with experience or backgrounds in scenic production, props, costumes and special effects are encouraged to attend as is anyone who would have an interest in any of the departments.

The Production will be staged and directed by David Holmes and his wife Kathleen Holmes. The Holmes have a long and extensive background internationally in the producing and staging of this classic and other full production ballets.
