Ballet Theatre of Scranton and Marywood University invite you to be a part of their holiday community gift by joining the ranks of its Nutcracker Benefactors.  Any financial contribution would be most welcome and appreciated.  All donations of $100.00 or more will receive reserved seating at one of the six performances, as long as the donation and request is received within a sufficient amount of time to allow us to honor the seating request for the day/time of the desired performance you wish to attend.  These reserved seats are limited at each performance to allow most patrons to attend at no charge.

Dear Patron,

The Nutcracker Ballet, the traditional holiday gift presented annually by Ballet Theatre of Scranton and Marywood University, celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2015!

Our production has been sited by the national publication, Dance Magazine, as the only Nutcracker Ballet given as a community gift in the United States. Among its many awards & recognitions we are proud to be the recipient of the 2007 Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce “Home Star Award” for The Nutcracker’s cultural and economic impact on our community.

From the first performance, with a budget of a few hundred dollars, “The Nutcracker” has grown to an impressive production of over 100 dancers, professional sets, costumes and mesmerizing special effects. The production has entertained over 300,000 people to date and has come to be revered by the Northeastern Pennsylvania Community. For many, it is their first introduction to this beautiful art form. For others, it is the only way they can afford to bring their families to such an extravagant theatrical production. Whatever the reason, each year the audiences keep coming and fill every seat for every performance!

In 2008, we established The Nutcracker Annual Fund. The purpose of this drive is to raise funds to preserve “The Nutcracker” in the spirit in which it was intended – as a gift.

As thanks for any donation of $100.00, we will reserve 6 seats in your name at any EVENING performance of “The Nutcracker” or 4 seats for any AFTERNOON performance and you will be acknowledged in our program. Please print out (print the screen/page) and fill in the attached benefactor ticket request form and send it in with your donation. Please make checks payable to: Ballet Theatre of Scranton.  Only seats requested on the benefactor form will be honored. We will not have extra tickets available the day of the performance. Your requested tickets will be waiting at the door for you. The deadline to reserve tickets is December 8th.   As a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation, your donation would be most appreciated, and may be tax deductible, as provided by law. Please consult your tax advisor.

Thank you for your generosity and support!
