Nutcracker at Home

Kate Webb, Fairmount dance faculty, and Verb Ballets dancers will perform as part of the Fairmount Center for the Arts FREE live-stream program.

Fairmount Center for the Arts in Novelty will present Nutcracker at Home, a safe and magical way to celebrate and connect this holiday season, on December 6 from 3-4pm EST.  This event is free to the public but donations are strongly encouraged.

Nutcracker at Home is a live-streamed event that includes dance, music, and fun.  Fairmount faculty and dancers will perform scenes from The Nutcracker and professional musicians will lead a family sing-along.  Plus, the program will end with a visit from a special guest from the North Pole!  Families and friends are encouraged to stream from their own homes but share in the magic by connecting during the performance via FaceTime, text, or other methods.

While the streamed event is free, two special packages are being offered to help enhance your holiday fun.  The Sugar Plum Fun package ($50) includes a custom decorate-your-own Nutcracker cookie kit by D is for Delicious, including links to a cookie decorating lesson.  It also includes a 30-minute live Zoom with Nutcracker ballerinas after the performance where they will greet you and your family and share some secrets of performing this beloved show. 

The Dance of the Toy Soldier package ($75) includes the cookies and cast Zoom mentioned above, as well as a holiday ornament craft kit designed by Fairmount artists that can be done from home.  The kit will yield two one-of-a-kind Nutcracker ornaments; one to share and one to keep.

The event is free to the public but donations are strongly encouraged as are the purchase of special packages. The link to the live performance will be posted at starting December 1.
