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 28th season, Phase 3 of Cracking a New Nutcracker is in place to raise funds for new Party Scene, Land of Snow, and Land of Sweets backdrops. Help us keep our dancers and performances looking their absolute best! Donate to the costume fund where your dollars will go directly into the repair and replacement of the beautiful costumes used in not only The Nutcracker, but all of our productions. Any amount is appreciated. Please select the PayPal button below and enter the amount you wish to contribute.
