Fall in love with the holiday spirit as you embark with Clara on a magical journey through the land of sweets. On December 14th, this enchanting story unfolds at The Grand Theatre. We invite you to join Frankfort School of Ballet as they present their annual production of The Nutcracker with professional guest artists from Gale Force Dance.

Tickets will be available through the Grand Theatre box office and online starting November 18th and at the ticket window on the day of the show.

We will also present Special Group Shows on December 13th at 9:00 am and 12:00 noon

The Special Group Shows are designed specially for school children, nursing home residents, performing arts groups, homeschool families, and other groups. They are a little bit shorter than our regular public shows, include a Question-and-Answer session with cast and crew, and are offered at a reduced price. Also, all groups who reserve their spots in advance will receive a thorough and interesting Education Packet based on Kentucky's Academic Standards and filled with art projects, games, songs, lesson plan ideas, history, ballet vocabulary, and topics for discussion. For more information and to reserve your seats, email or call (502) 226-6443.

Artistic Direction by Jaddyn Sage

This year's Nutcracker will be beautifully directed by Jaddyn Sage. Jaddyn has a B.F.A in Dance from Ball State University. She has worked in various capacities in a directing role. In Dancing Towards Change (2015) she developed concepts for an original work and was part of a directing team. In 2016, Jaddyn worked alongside Sidra Bell of Sidra Bell Dance New York as assistant director for Impact to Innovation which premiered at the IndyFringe. She was artistic director for Parallel VI (2017) a capstone presentation. Her latest directing credits include a grant-funded show, Yesteryear, which was presented in two installments in 2018 and 2019. She is thrilled to join Frankfort School of Ballet as artistic director for The Nutcracker this holiday season!
