- The presence of dancers from Brazoria County will help make Festival
Ballet’s 10th-anniversary production of “The Nutcracker” even more special
Performances will be at 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday and 4 p.m. on Dec. 17 at
the San Jacinto College South Fine Arts Center, 13735 Beamer Road in
Audiences can enjoy the time-honored story by E.T.A. Hoffman of one very
special night as every toy under the Christmas tree comes alive with all the
splendor and merriment of the season. The production features magnificent
costumes and spectacular sets — including a tree that grows tall and falling
snow that blankets a Nutcracker wonderland.
This “Nutcracker” production is very special, as it will include some of the
most promising young dancers from the greater Houston area, including many
from Brazoria County that have roles in Festival Ballet’s production.
Festival Ballet member and Angleton resident Danielle Phelps will perform
the role of Clara.
