Nutcracker - The New Jersey Civic Youth Ballet

The Centenary Stage Company will present The New Jersey Civic Youth Ballet's (NJCYB) performances of the annual Nutcracker this year in the David and Carol Lackland Center in Hackettstown. With a cast of 60 talented dancers from Morris, Sussex and Warren Counties, The NJCYB's Nutcracker is unique because it's narrated by Janine Byrnes who tells the story from the perspective of young Clara Stahlbaum.

In this dramatic presentation, the audience is invited to Dr. And Mrs. Stahlbaum's Christmas Party. As the theater darkens, and some of the world's most beautiful music plays, Ms. Byrnes takes the audience on a storybook adventure. Clara's Godfather presents his magic show of dancing dolls enchanting the children who attend the party. He has gifts for all, but one touches the young Clara's heart, an ugly Nutcracker. As Clara falls asleep under the beautiful Christmas tree, the noise of mice wake her. To save Clara, the Nutcracker and his army battle the giant Mouse King. The Nutcracker turns into a handsome prince, and takes a grown-up Clara through the enchanted forest into the land of Christmas. "This is the most enchanting fairy tale of a child's most unforgettable Christmas," says NJCYB
