Curtain to Close on Local Dance Company's Version of "The Nutcracker"


-- A local dance company's production of "The Nutcracker" is a tradition, but the curtain is about to close for a final time on their rendition of the popular ballet.

This will the 29th year the Dance Theatre of Wilmington will present "The Nutcracker." As performers run through their final rehearsals before the weekend performances, they know the show won't be back next year. The directors have decided to end the run because of travel and schedule conflicts.

"The Nutcracker" will be performed at the Minnie Evans Art Center Saturday, November 25 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 26 at 3:00 p.m.
