“This event spotlights our talented performing arts students in dance, music, and theatre and offers the gift of a joyful celebration to our community,” said Alora Haynes, who chairs the Department of Fine Arts and Entertainment Technology. “The audience can expect singing, dancing, frolicking elves, adorable Frostettes, Santa Claus and even some winter wonderland magic!”
Members of the Dance Theatre of Santa Fe portray sweets throughout the world from the second act of “The Nutcracker” ballet. Ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Kingdom of Sweets includes chocolate from Spain, tea from China, coffee from Arabia, candy canes from Russia and the enchanting Mother Caramel and her marshmallows.
