This year, in celebration of our 15th year of Nutcracker, we are adding a special students’ schooltime matinee for the second and third graders of the Middletown Public Schools on Wednesday, November 23rd. We will again be welcoming the Pell School third graders to Rosecliff the day before through the generosity of David and Leslie Reed and the Bazarsky Family Foundation. After we leave Rosecliff, we take the Nutcracker magic to our friends at Sandywoods Farm in Tiverton on Sunday, December 4th.
Before Island Moving Company’s Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff opens the Friday after Thanksgiving, IMC will allow the general public to see how the performance comes together, with a Free Open Rehearsal on Friday, November 11 at 12:30pm. Our professional dancers and members of our younger “kids cast” will be rehearsing various sections of the Nutcracker for all to take a sneak peek at. Rehearsal will be finished by 3:00pm.
Raffle tickets are now on sale for your chance to win the very same Oscar De La Renta necklace that is given to Frau Oelrich during the party scene.
Raffle tickets are only $10. CLICK HERE FOR YOUR CHANCE TO ENTER
The value is $1,150 and it is graciously donated by Gem-Craft, Inc., Cranston, RI.
