Hilton Head Dance Theatre presents The Nutcracker
One of the island’s most treasured holiday traditions returns as the Hilton Head Dance Theatre’s 26th annual Nutcracker ballet hits the stage of the Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) for its last few shows this weekend.
Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturcay, with a 2:30 p.m matinee Saturday.
“Friends and patrons of the Hilton Head Dance Theatre may note the change in venue from the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina to the Visual and Performing Arts Center,” said Lori Finger, president of the Hilton Head Dance Theatre. “The decision to hold the Nutcracker at the VPAC this year was to experiment with performing in a more expansive venue that could accommodate a larger audience. Because we had numerous sold-out shows last year, we are hoping the bigger theater will expand our audience to a broader spectrum within the community. That said, we cannot thank the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina enough for its 15 years of generosity in welcoming the Nutcracker to their stage in the beautiful Elizabeth Wallace Theater. “
The Visual and Performing Arts Center is located on 70 Wilborn Road at the Hilton Head High School campus, Hilton Head Island. Tickets are: $25 for adults; $20 for seniors (over 60); $20 for students (13-18); and $15 for children 12 and under. Tickets go on sale October 14th and can be purchased online at hhdt.org or by calling 843-842-3262.
