CELEBRATE THE SWEETNESS OF SEASON WITH “THE NUTCRACKER”
Come see the holiday classic at The Lyric Theatre, December 6-8
(Stuart, FL) – The holiday season brings many traditions, but the sweetest one of all must be Florida Arts & Dance Company’s (FADC) production of “The Nutcracker”. For 23-years, FADC students have been bringing audiences on an exciting journey where mice battle with soldiers and snowflakes perform an airy waltz.
FADC will present “The Mini-Nutcracker” on Friday, December 6 at 5:00 pm. “This a shortened version of the classic.” said Joann Gallagher, FADC President. “The show will last about 1-hour, so it’s perfect for families with young children, or those who are sensory sensitive. Best of all, families can enjoy the show at the Lyric and still have time to watch the Stuart Christmas Parade.”
On Saturday, December 7 at 2:00 and 7:00 pm, and Sunday, December 8 at 3:00 pm, FADC are joined by guest artists from Russian Ballet Orlando.
Tickets are available at www.lyrictheatre.com or by phone at 772-286-7827.

Show sponsors include: TC Palm/The Stuart News, Lively Orthodontics, Johnson Honda, Five Star Housing, Palm City Horse and Hound, Vianne Nichols, Lauri Goldstein, Jeanette Mueller, Awareness Technologies, Seacoast Bank, Windsor Club, Indian River Club and Wallace Automotive.
