Nutcracker 2016 Countdown!
About Our Nutcracker
TAYB’s Nutcracker ballet is more than a holiday tradition with familiar music. Students from all five TAYB sites start preparing for “The Nutcracker” in August, rehearsing weekly and learning the ropes of being in a large scale, full-length ballet production. The 2016 production will mark the 40th anniversary of TAYB’s Nutcracker, which has been the first exposure to ballet for thousands of our community’s children over the decades.
The cast of over 140 includes New World School of the Arts students in the more advanced roles, along with world-class guest stars, guaranteeing both quality and a level of diversity not seen in other local productions of The Nutcracker. Our goal is to make certain all children in the audience see performers on stage who look like them.
Over 7,000 public schoolchildren experience this production annually. The region’s first Sensory-Friendly Nutcracker was launched by TAYB in 2013. Through this effort, TAYB has become a leader by the local arts community in making the arts accessible to all children.
This year’s production of the Nutcracker will be on Saturday, December 3rd at 7pm at Miami-Dade County Auditorium.
Tickets will for the public performance will go on sale at the beginning of October. Tickets may be purchased through Ticketmaster or at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium Box office
