Locals to be featured in ‘Nutcracker’

Several local dancers will perform when the Columbia City Ballet comes to Bennettsville to perform the Nutcracker on Dec. 7.
It is presented by Bennettsville Bicentennial Celebration with the performance starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Marlboro Civic Center.
The Columbia City Ballet is South Carolina’s largest performing arts organization.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under.
The Nutcracker ballet is based on the story, The Nutcracker and the King of Mice written by E.T.A. Hoffman. It is the story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads.
“It is a good way to kick off the holiday season,” said Brittany Jones, assistant director of Tourism, Parks, and Recreation for Bennettsville.
Local dancers chosen to perform include Laney Snyder, Mouse Captain; Rose Odom, Cartwheel Mouse; Canon English, Cartwheel Mouse; Emma Faith Burr, Dew Drop Fairy Attendant; Emilie Riedeburg, Trumpeter; Skylar Locklear, Sugar Plum Fairy Attendant; Sarah Grace Smith, Sugar Plum Fairy Attendant; Tiffany Starbird, Sugar Plum Fairy Attendant; and Chloe English, Butterfly.
“Come and support our local dancers,” she said. “It is a great way for your family to kick off the holiday season.”
Previously the Columbia City Ballet came to Bennettsville on March 21, 2017, to perform Beauty and Beast.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.bennettsville200.com or at the Marlboro Civic Center on Dec. 2.  
All tickets are general admission. Tickets will be available for pick up at Will Call starting Dec. 2.
