Getting Ready to Crack the Nut

The cast and crew of the Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff are loading into the mansion this weekend with costumes, Christmas trees, lights, cables and props.  Last weekend, the professional dancers and the children’s cast put together the ballet’s big scenes in the studio during an Open Rehearsal at 3 Charles Street.  A Video Diary of that long and productive day is here.  There are still a very few tickets left for purchase for this perennially sold out production.  Miki, Danielle and Christine have made a few wonderful changes to the ballet which the dancers are excited about. Don’t miss Newport’s favorite holiday tradition!
