For those seeking a bit of traditional holiday cheer this year, the Warwick Center for the Performing Arts and The Warwick Dance Collective will be presenting a uniquely 2020 Nutcracker production, with multiple livestreamed performances throughout the weekend of Fri., Dec. 4 through Sun., Dec. 6. Community members will be able to bring Clara, the Nutcracker, and the Sugar Plum Fairy right into their living rooms to kick off the season with this abridged version of the classic holiday tale.
The live production features professional members of the Warwick Dance Collective along with local students from Warwick Center for the Performing Arts, and will be staged nine times over the course of the weekend, with scenes set across multiple rooms of the WCPA building to provide a safe experience for all performers. Video livestreams of all nine performances are open to the public, and will bring at-home viewers on a journey from Clara’s home on Christmas Eve through a magical snow scene and on to the enchanted Land of Sweets.
Tickets for the livestream performances are available for $20 per household at www.warwickperformingarts.com. Viewers can tune in through Eventbrite at 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., or 7:30 p.m. on Fri., Dec. 4 and Sat., Dec. 5; or at 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m., or 2:30 p.m. on Sun., Dec. 6. The Warwick Dance Collective is also accepting donations to help offset the cost of the production.
