A Very Chico Nutcracker

Chico Ballet incorporates local elements into classic ballet

Posted: Nov 20, 2017 7:26 PM

The Chico Ballet is bringing back its production of "A Very Chico Nutcracker" for a second year this holiday season.
You will find elements of Chico history throughout the performance in its sets and costumes and the way the classic tale is told.
Inspired by Dr. OLscar Stansbury and his daughter Angeline, the story captures the excitement of the night before Christmas, with almond blossoms instead of snow on the stage... and a magical journey involving a  handsome prince. 
Inspire School of the Arts and Sciences Freshman Tirza Peter-Panunto dances the role of Angeline. Jake Bevens will perform the role of the Nutcracker. He has danced for the Chico Community Ballet since elementary school and is now dancing professionally in Los Angeles.
The performances will include two meet and greet opportunities for the audience. The first is opening night, when members of the Standsbury Association in full period costume will greet people as they enter Laxson Auditorium. The second with be an autograph party with costumed dancers, immediately following the Saturday matinee.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 30th through Saturday, December 2nd. There are matinee performances at 2 p.m. Saturday December 2nd and Sunday December 3rd.
Tickets Are $30 premium, $24 Adult, $22 for Seniors, $13 for Youth and $10 for Chico State Students. For more information visit www.chicoperformances.com or call (530) 898-6333.
