BREWSTER, N.Y. -- Visions of dancing sugar plum fairies are already the focus of over 175 local performers who were selected for the Seven Star School of Performing Arts’ annual holiday tradition of The Nutcracker coming to Brewster to help celebrate the season.

The performances, Dec. 11 to Dec. 13 at Brewster High School’s Performing Arts Center, will feature dancers from the ages of four to 20, said Anita Intrieri, the director of ballet.

"The Nutcracker Ballet, by Tchaikovsky, is one of the most famous ballets in the world. Performing as well as watching The Nutcracker is an important Christmas holiday tradition,” explains Intrieri. “More than any other ballet, The Nutcracker is about children and the magic of childhood. In America, The Nutcracker is generally a child's first real professional experience. Performances are typically filled with audience members of all ages anxiously awaiting the memorable dances, beautiful music, and glorious scenes they have cherished year after year. Performing this ballet is an event to be remembered as well as an honor for all involved.” 

This version of The Nutcracker is choreographed by Intrieri along with Pat Sorrell, Melissa Nigelhout, Jaclyn Yarusso, Andrei Isselev, Nicole Aravena, Erin Burton, Jackie Medeira and Marius Petipa. 

Tickets are available at Seven Star School of Performing Arts 509 Route 312 in Brewster. Performances are Friday, Dec. 11 at 6:30 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 12 at 3 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 13 at 3 p.m.

Pre-sale tickets are $15 and $20 at the door. Visit www.SevenStarSchool.com, email info@sevenstarschool.com or call 845-278-0728 for more information.
