The Nutcracker Ballet, at Marywood University – Ballet Theatre of Scranton and Marywood University will present their 43rd annual free performances of The Nutcracker Ballet on December 26, 27 and 28 at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM each day at Marywood’s Sette LaVerghetta Center for the Performing Arts Theater.

While there is no charge for tickets, reserved seat tickets are available to the general public, on a first come, first serve basis, at the Marywood box office (2300 Adams Avenue, Scranton) 2 hours prior to the specific performance. For additional information or to become a Nutcracker sponsor to receive reserved seating benefits, please call 570-347-2867 (BTOS) or e-mail us at balletheatre@aol.com.

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!
