The Nutcracker  · December 18, 2006

Saturday, December 16th - The Nutcracker

Brooke auditioned with The Baton Rouge Ballet for The Nutcracker several months ago and was given the role as a cherub.  She performed in Saturday nights performance and Sunday nights performance. The production was beautiful and Brooke did a great job. 

We attended as a family Saturday night and Brea was amazed with the dancers, lights and music.  She threw her arms in the air each time one of the ballerinas did and she bounced on my lap to the music.  Baker even enjoyed the show even though he protested going.  

Here are a few pictures from the dressing room and backstage.  We were not allowed to take pictures from the audience so there are none from the actual performance.
