SALT LAKE CITY — Ballet West’s production of “The Nutcracker” is returning to the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre this holiday season.
Performances — which include evening and matinee shows — run from Dec. 2 through Dec. 24.
“The Nutcracker is all about families and tradition,” said Artistic Director Adam Sklute. “We have dancers in The Nutcracker whose parents, grandparents, and even in one case, great-grandparents, who have danced in The Nutcracker.”
More than 300 children participate in the production over its three-week run, according to a Tuesday morning press release from Ballet West.
“Each children’s cast runs for a week, with 75 children in every performance,” the release stated.
Sklute said, “Hundreds of children from multiple states around the Intermountain Region audition for the opportunity to perform in Ballet West’s The Nutcracker. Being selected for the coveted roles in the production is an honor and has become a tradition for generations of families.”
