Piedmont Dance Theatre and Salisbury Symphony present 'The Nutcracker' again

Thanks to a fruitful collaboration between the Salisbury Symphony and Piedmont Dance Theatre, Salisbury is one of the lucky towns where people can see a live “Nutcracker” performance.
This year is a milestone for both groups: Piedmont Dance Theatre is turning 10, while Salisbury Symphony conductor David Hagy is celebrating 25 years with the Salisbury Symphony.
This is the sixth year of the holiday classic coming to Catawba College’s Keppel Auditorium. Performances are Dec. 15 and 16.
This year’s production will feature two guest artists: Erica Wesselman as the Sugar Plum Fairy and Samuel Chester as the handsome Cavalier. William Hoppe, a dancer with the Dayton Ballet, debuts this year as the Nutcracker Price.
Piedmont Dance Theatre, run by Rebecca and Daniel Wiley, has been responsible for more than 25,000 elementary and middle school students being able to attend ‘The Nutcracker.’
Besides the Nutcracker collaboration, this symphony season will showcase PDT’s debut of “A Little Serenade” set to Eine Kleine Machtmusik by Mozart and choreographed by Rebecca Wiley.
Nutcracker performances are scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 15 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16. Reserved seating is offered, and tickets can be purchased online by visiting salisburysymphony.org
