2020 Nutcracker The Ballet

Nutcracker, The Ballet is available to watch online for the first time ever, via The decision to go virtual became clear when it was realized that due to COVID-19 the performance could not be held live for safety concerns.

This year, students had the exciting opportunity to bring a traditional holiday classic to our community virtually, giving all those involved the invaluable experience of artists adapting to their environment and fulfilling the tradition of “the show must go on”. The ballet has been produced by the local Emmy award-winning production company, The Media Center, featuring this year’s student dancers. There are special features including behind-the-scenes interviews addressing the challenges of this rigorous process and the added layer of COVID-19 precautions.

Returning this year, costume designers include the award-winning Michelle Gray, Dr. Carol Foust, Mia Harberts, Kayla Gray, and Joslyn Rafferty as well as AnaKacia Shifflet.

Principal dancers in this year’s production include Gabriella Harberts as Clara, Logan Stanifer as the Nutcracker Prince, Connor Foust as Drosselmeyer and Cavalier, Emma Rafferty and Nadia Jackson as the Sugarplum Fairy, Nicholas Parker as the Snow King and Cavalier, Madeline Stanifer and Nadia Jackson as the Snow Queen, Emma Eide as the Rat Queen, and Meena Ropp and Jewel Sirota as Dewdrop Fairy. Choreography is by Nanine Wainwright and Brittany Nunes. 

Lead sponsor of Nutcracker, The Ballet is Balance A/V Systems with additional support from Black Hills Energy, Dill/Rawlings Southern Colorado Community Foundation Fund, Lenore Chamberlain Nondiscretionary Fund, Mary Graham Rawlings Fund, Donald & Raelene Moore, Robert H. Rawlings Endowment, Kathy Farley and Fran McClave, and the Pueblo Board of Water Works.
