Brighton School of Ballet is pleased to present its 32nd annual production of the Nutcracker Ballet, which proudly returns to its downtown Brighton roots this year, with performances at the Brighton Center for Performing Arts at 2 p.m. Saturday Dec. 9 and 10.

Now in its fourth decade of supporting and delighting the Livingston County community, this beloved, high-quality holiday spectacular features nearly 100 local dancers and performers, a dazzling array of props and costumes, and the beautiful music that has made this production a cherished annual tradition for so many local families. Children and adults alike will be treated to the sights of festive scenery, creative choreography, and a Christmas tree that “magically” grows right before their eyes!

In addition to Brighton School of Ballet’s dedicated students, for the 8th year in a row the performance will feature principal dancers from the National Ballet Theatre of Puerto Rico who will grace the stage in the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier Prince, and this year also a professional guest artist from the Mauro Youth Ballet of Puerto Rico in the role of the Nutcracker.

“We’re truly blessed to have these dancers who so graciously give of themselves and share their talents with us, particularly in light of the devastation of Hurricane Maria,” said second-generation artistic director Katrina Frelich.

In an effort to help the dance community on the island recover, Brighton School of Ballet has set up a Go Fund Me campaign and will donate a portion of the proceeds of both performances to the Mauro Youth Ballet.

Audiences will also be dazzled by a special appearance from the Jumpin’ All-Stars, the national award-winning jump rope team based in Howell

This treasured tradition helps kick off the holiday season for many families. “This community has such a depth of artistic talent and appreciation, and we’re honored to be at the heart of helping to develop and showcase it,” Frelich said.

Tickets are available for purchase at — $22 adults, $20 child/teen/senior — and will be sold at the door of both performances while they last.
