Missouri City Ballet kicks off the 2016 Holiday Season with The Nutcracker.
The Missouri City Ballet brings its holiday tradition again to the Stafford Centre for three magical performances on Saturday, November 26th and Sunday, November 27th.
New costumes and choreography, Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, as well as a cast of area dancers make the classic story of The Nutcracker come to life.
The Nutcracker, a timeless holiday classic, is a story of a young girl named Clara who receives a magical nutcracker doll on Christmas Eve from her Uncle Drosselmeyer.
After going to bed, Clara dreams of a battle between the Nutcracker Prince and mice.
Her dream continues with a visit to the beautiful Land of Snow and the delightful Land of Sweets.
Following each performance, the audience will be able to meet the cast for photos and autographs.

In its 7th season, the Missouri City Ballet, a non-profit, pre-professional ballet company, offers intensive training and performance opportunities for serious young dancers in the Fort Bend area.
Artistic Director Sharon Teague, a retired Houston Ballet First Soloist, uses her wealth of ballet experience and visionary leadership to prepare the dancers and productions for the stage.
Principal coach, Lauren Anderson, retired Houston Ballet Principal dancer, brings her legendary talent to the Missouri City Ballet Company.
Laeral Dance Academy is proud to be the home of the Missouri City Ballet Company.
Tickets start at only $22 to enable families to bring their little ones to see the magical production of The Nutcracker.
The cast this year will wow audiences.
As Sharon Teague says, “You will be surprised to see what these 14, 15, and 16-year-old dancers can do, and that’s from someone who danced with the Houston Ballet for many years.”
Teague further added, “I think your family really will enjoy this holiday tradition.”
