The original Ballet Theatre of Scranton production was first conceived by the Company’s late founder Constance Reynolds, a native of Scotland, to thank the NEPA community for their welcoming hospitality. In return, since 1976, her company “gave back” to the community through the gift of The Nutcracker during the holiday season. The tradition continues under the direction of Mrs. Reynolds chosen successor, Joanne Arduino, current Artistic Director. Since its first presentation, over 350,000 citizens, from across the country, have enjoyed the production and have made it a part of their Holiday tradition. Ballet Theatre of Scranton and Marywood University have maintained the performances offered to the public at no charge through the dedication of its Board, Directors, and Dancers, and the generosity of local benefactors. Over 150 people are involved in the annual event including professional designers, technicians, and guest artists. To date, the production has been staged 300 times as a free gift, 4800 regional dancers have performed, and hundreds of volunteers (from the artistic staff, technicians, designers, and dancers) have donated their time and talents.
A few highlights of Ballet Theatre of Scranton’s Nutcracker gift are toys coming to life, snow falling on dancing snowflakes, a traveling angel who transports Clara and her Prince on their magical journey, and a 20-foot growing Christmas tree!
