The countdown has begun to one of the most cherished holiday traditions in the Triad: UNCSA's production of The Nutcracker. The box office opening kick-off event is set to take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 30, at the Stevens Center.
The University of North Carolina School of the Arts' 2016 production of The Nutcracker was another blockbuster, earning approximately $625,000 in net revenue.
In the Kingdom of Sweets life is decadent and sugary, filled with confections and flowers and fun-loving characters like Mother Ginger. But while the Sugar Plum Fairy's world may be candy-coated, that sweetness shouldn't be confused with simplicity.
The Nutcracker Boutique, located in the former restaurant space on the ground floor level of the Stevens Center of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, opens 12/8 at 6:30 p.m. The Stevens Center is located at 405 West Fourth St. in downtown Winston-Salem.
