The Nutcracker Returns To Chadron On Sunday


      The Nutcracker, the most-performed ballet in the world and likely the best-known by the general public, makes its storm-delayed return to Chadron tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 on the Memorial Hall Auditorium stage.

     The Consuming Fire Dance Theater production was scheduled for last month, but was postponed by the first of the month’s winter storms.

    While many dance companies put on the Nutcracker every year, Consuming Fire owner and instructor Donna Gimeson doesn’t. 

Gimeson first staged The Nutcracker in 2013 and has continued to fine-tune the production over the years, allowing her to cut the rehearsal time needed to about 4 months.

Sge says that although the basic show is the same every time, each production is a little different to reflect that year’s specific group of dancers

Gimeson says one reason the Nutcracker is so widely produced by dance schools is that it has roles for dancers of all ages and levels of experience.

Tickets for the Consuming Fire production of The Nutcracker will be available in the Memorial Hall lobby with curtain time Sunday at 2:00.
