SAVANNAH, GA. – Nov. 7, 2022– The Savannah Ballet Theatre (SBT) is slated to celebrate the holiday season with a live production of The Nutcracker at 5 p.m. on December 10 at the Lucas Theater, located on 32 Abercorn Street in Savannah. In addition to these performances and thanks to some generous sponsors, SBT will perform on December 9 for local Chatham County school students.

The legendary score by Tchaikovsky will fuel the performance of this classic holiday ballet, which demonstrates the story of a young girl’s dream of a Christmas gift come-to-life to become her beloved prince. There’s no better way to get in the holiday spirit than by joining SBT as they guide members of the audience through a magical holiday dream.

“The Nutcracker is an incredible way to kick-off the holiday season, we are so excited to showcase our incredible dancers and the Savannah Ballet Theatre,” said SBT artistic director Suzanne Braddy. “The local dancers at our professional company are filled with excitement for this year’s performance as it features guest artists, exciting projections and beautiful costumes to create the magical experience that the audience looks forward to each year. We could not have put this production on without the generous support of our sponsors and our SBT patrons.”
