ACDC Nutcracker Production Has Scottish Flair
The Nutcracker as presented by The Alma College Dance Company (ACDC) in collaboration with the Alma Symphony Orchestra (ASO), represents life in the Scottish city of Edinburgh circa 1905.
"It was the intent of the Dance Company to bring you a special personalized Nutcracker that would give it individual meaning to the heritage of our community," Choreographer Tom Morris, associate professor of theatre and dance, said. "The Nutcracker of Alma stands as testimony to the dedication and ingenuity of those involved in the project."
This holiday favorite is molded with exciting and beautiful dance moments and framed with fantastic sets and costumes. The ACDC production features lively character dances and stunning classical ballet performed by College students and child dancers of the Academy of Performing Arts and DuHadway Dance Dimensions in Alma. College alumni and professors fill several roles. The ASO performs the renowned Tchaikovsky score.
