Celebrate the Holidays with Sugar Plums and Mice!

The Nutcracker has been a ballet holiday treat for about 120 years. The first performance of The Nutcracker was held in St. Petersburg, Russia at the Imperial Mariinsky Theatre. Two of ballet’s most revered classical choreographers, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, are credited for the original ballet choreography set to the music of famed ballet composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
The original story of The Nutcracker, written by E.T.A. Hoffman, centers around the journey of a young girl named Marie. The magic begins when Marie is presented with a nutcracker by her favorite Godfather Drosselmeyer. At the stroke of midnight, the nutcracker comes to life to battle a giant horde of evil mice. When the battle has been won, the nutcracker transforms into a handsome prince, and in gratitude to Marie for helping win the battle, he escorts her to his enchanted Kingdom of Sweets where she meets the Sugar Plum Fairy and all of the prince’s loyal subjects.
Seven years ago,
 The Nutcracker premiered as a 20-minute lunchtime performance in the gymnasium of Sacred Hearts Academy. It has blossomed into a two-evening, full-length ballet Christmas affair onstage at Mamiya Theatre complete with snow, fog, and a holiday-themed craft and bake sale! This year’s cast includes 79 dancers from grades 7-12 featuring senior Academy dancers Maya Waldrep as the Sugar Plum Fairy and Jayla Wakabayashi as the Snow Queen, and sophomore Risa Ishii as the Dewdrop Fairy. Freshman Kira Stone will dance the role of Clara the young girl who experiences a magical Christmas battling evil mice to save her Sugar Plum Fairy and dancing with delicious sweets.
Performances will be held on Friday Dec. 4th at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday Dec. 5th at 7:00 p.m. at Mamiya Theatre. Tickets (reserved seating) are $10 plus processing fees at www.sacredhearts.org/tickets.

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers? Digital marketing goals
