Nutcracker play on stage in Bend
Bend Experimental Art Theatre’s holiday production is “The Story of the Nutcracker.”
The play is a unique dramatization, adapted by Michele Vacca from “The Tales of Hoffman,” the Dumas story and the Tchaikovsky ballet scenario, and brings the stage alive with traditional Nutcracker characters.
With visions of sugar plums dancing on stage, all the creatures are stirring throughout “The Story of the Nutcracker,” set to the dreamy music of Peter Illyich Tchaikovsky.
The cast portrays more than 30 characters in this lively and enchanting production, as the children, Fritz and Marie, are visited by Uncle Drosselmeyer, who brings three very special dolls for their Christmas presents.
Performances take place at 2nd Street Theater, Dec. 1-3 and Dec. 8-10 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 11 at 3 p.m.
For tickets, visit www.beatonline.org or call 541-419-5558.
