Nutcracker in a Nutshell 

For its 20th anniversary, the Bangor Ballet is putting on some special performances.

Friday, the ballet performed Nutcracker in a Nutshell for school kids in Brewer.

The show is a shortened version of the Nutcracker.

” I hope they can understand a sense of the artistic element of the ballet and hopefully they’ll have a little bit of an appreciation for hard work that goes into it,” said Jane Bragg, executive director of Bangor Ballet.

Public performances are Sunday, November 24th at 4pm at the Brewer Performing Arts Center and Saturday, December 7th at 7pm at the Bucksport Performing Arts Center.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children 12 and younger.
