BANGOR, Maine — Bangor Ballet will present “Nutcracker in a Nutshell” danced by children, for children, in Brewer and Bucksport. The production will be performed primarily by members of the newly formed Bangor Ballet Junior Company with featured dancers from the regular company.
With in-school performances in Brewer and Bucksport and public performances in Brewer and Bucksport, Bangor Ballet staff said it looks forward to bringing the holiday favorite to many who otherwise might not have the opportunity to see a live Nutcracker performance, or who would like to see another interpretation of the classic.
