Each year, Sawnee Ballet Theatre brings something new to this timeless classic. After 25 seasons, SBT campaigned to Crack a New Nutcracker. With help through grants and fundraising, the Nutcracker became alight with new costumes, props, scenery, and choreography. In our 29th season, restrictions due to COVID-19 have impacted our capability to present live performances.  While we are able to persevere, the costs associated with this year’s production are mounting.  Please consider donating, advertising or sponsoring this season to help not only keep our Nutcracker alive, but all of our productions. Any amount is most appreciated. Please select the PayPal button below and enter the amount you wish to contribute.
