It's time for the 40th Anniversary Production of the Nutcracker put on by the Schuylkill ValleyRegional Dance Company. It's going on at the Hill School Center for the Arts in Pottstown on December 3 at 7:30 p.m. and also on December 4 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $20.00 for adults and Seniors/Students are $15.00. There are discount rates for groups of 10 or more.
The Schuylkill Valley Regional Dance Company will be performing a brand "new to the area" "Nutcracker" this year to celebrate its 40th Anniversary. Two former principal dancers from the Kirov Ballet, Andrei Ustinov and Elena Martinson, will be setting choreography on the Company based on the original work by Marius Petipa (originally performed at the Kirov in 1892).
The Company performs a "Nutcracker" annually but this year there will be many changes to what people have become accustomed to in the area. For more information you can call the Company at 484-941-0683. This is a holiday tradition not to be missed.
I am helping out with some fundraising for this wonderful arts center by creating a jewelry set for their basket raffle. Raffle tickets can be purchased at both of the productions of the show.
I created a lovely necklace/earring set...just perfect for the holidays. It's complete with lots of sparkle. Swarovski crystals are paired with crystal pearls and some lampworked glass. Silver plated chain and a lobster claw clasp are used. The earrings are hung on small kidney bean sterling silver wires.
