    Virginia Regional Ballet, a not-for-profit organization comprising Virginia Regional Ballet Academy’s most promising students and area professionals, will be performing Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” under the artistic direction of Heidi Robitshek. Former Artistic Director of the Chamber Ballet for 35 years, Heidi Robitshek’s Nutcracker production has been a Williamsburg tradition for 40 years. Virginia Regional Ballet will present an abbreviated version of this Christmas classic this coming December. We know that it is difficult to schedule as many cultural arts events for your students as you would like, so let us help you inspire a love for the arts in your students through the magic of this beloved ballet.

    This year, four one-hour performances of “The Nutcracker” are scheduled for Friday, December 15, 2017, at 10:15 AM; Monday, December 18, 2017, at 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM; and Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at 10:00 AM . The ballet will once again be performed at Phi Beta Kappa Memorial Hall at the College of William and Mary. This shortened version of the Nutcracker story takes place during the magical party when Klara receives her beloved Nutcracker and then several divertissements from the Land of Sweets entertain us. A lively scene follows with the Nutcracker and his soldiers battling the Mouse King and his mice. Finally, the Snow Queen and her King dance with their Snowflakes.

    Partial funding from the Williamsburg Area Arts Commission allows VRB to offer reduced rates for school performances; thereby providing the opportunity for students and chaperones to attend these performances at the reduced rate of $5 per student; $5 per chaperone (limited to 1 chaperone per 12 students), and $5 per Home School Parent-Teacher. School Teachers attend at no charge.

    Providing this cultural event for your students is one of the high points in our performing season. This year new choreography and costumes will make this production even more exciting.
