Camp Fire Doesn't Stop Nutcracker Performance

Northern California Ballet presents the Nutcracker at the Historic State Theatre in Oroville.

Posted: Jan 11, 2019 7:10 PM

   The Camp Fire destroyed the Northern California Ballet's Dance Studio in Paradise.  And while it may have postponed the performance of The Nutcracker that dancers had been working so hard for ...  the show goes on next week, in Oroville.

   Not only will the ballet deliver a beautiful rendition of the traditional holiday classic, but for the first time ever it will be accompanied by a live performance of the Paradise Symphony. 

   The hope had been to take the stage of the Paradise Performing Arts Center, which survived the fire.  But the timeline for cleanup and rehearsals and such did not allow for it. So the State Theatre Arts Guild is providing the venue instead. The State Theatre is located at 1489 Myers Street in Downtown Oroville.

   Costumes and Set pieces are being donated from companies in Eugene and Sacramento, with other donations from the Arts Community near and far are helping to make the production possible.

   Ballet representatives told Action News Now Noon Anchor Linda Watkins-Bennett the dancers are very excited this is going to happen .  Performances of The Nutcracker will take place at 7:15 p.m. Friday, January 18th, 2:15 and 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, January 19th and 3:15 p.m. on Sunday, January 20th.

   General Admission is $20, Seniors and Children under 16 are $15 and reserved seating for all ages is $25.

   You can buy tickets through www.northerncaliforniaballet.com or by calling (530) 218.7315.

It wasn't as hot for northern California today, but temperatures still reached seasonable summer levels and more thunderstorms sprung over our eastern counties. After one more seasonable day, hotter weather will return to our area.
