Avant Chamber Ballet returns to Southlake with a new one-act Nutcracker with all your favorite characters and live music! The production will include new choreography and costumes in a family-friendly one-hour performance. For the third year, ACB will be presented by Apex Arts League who brings top-level arts group such as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Fort Worth Symphony to the city of Southlake.
“It’s wonderful to do the Nutcracker at the holidays,” says artistic director Katie Cooper. “ It doesn’t seem like the season without it but as a dancer it’s great to be able to something a little bit different and not do the party scene and battle scene. We just jump to all the great dancing which makes it an easier and shorter production for kids in the audience too.”
Tickets are available online at www.apex-arts.org or at the door.
$20 Adults or $15 Seniors, Students and Apex Members.
