Behind the curtains of the Nutcracker of Middle Georgia

With only 18 days over the course of 9 weeks to practice and perform, dancers aged 6 to 18 put on this magnificent show with the help of a handful of professionals. The show’s artistic director, Alice Sheridan, is behind the majority of choreography and movement in this production of The Nutcracker. The rest of the non-profit show is tediously and wonderfully produced by a crew of volunteers, some parents of dancers, including some that once danced in the show themselves. The legacy of Jean Weaver, the first artistic director of the show, lives on in this year’s performance. See more about this year’s production of the Nutcracker of Middle Georgia at The Grand Opera House in this short documentary.
