The Schaumburg Dance Ensemble’s 21st annual production continues to delight audiences of all ages. New this year, the narration will be provided by a grown-up Clara, a central figure of The Nutcracker. The ballet opens with Clara reflecting on her childhood and recounting her adventures one Christmas Eve when her magical godfather, Drosselmeyer (now a dancing role in the production), gives her a Nutcracker that comes to life and leads her on a remarkable journey. Along the way she encounters leaping Russians, waltzing flowers, twirling snowflake maidens and more. A company of professional dancers lead a large cast in Tchaikovsky’s magical ballet.
