"The Nutcracker" Returns to Marquette

A Christmas classic with a twist returns to Kaufman Auditorium  in Marquette this weekend.

The auditorium and the Second Skin Shop in Marquette have teamed up for a ballet production of “The Nutcracker”.

Lake Superior Youth Theatre is sponsoring it.

The production was not staged last year, and residents asked for it to return.

Director Camilla Mingay says this version of “The Nutcracker’ gives beginning dancers to be on stage with professionals.

It also gives some people a chance at the stage who might never otherwise be there, like Marquette mayor Johnny DePetro.

The performances are tomorrow night at 7 and Saturday at 1 pm at Kaufman.

Tickets are available at all NMU EZ Ticket outlets.
