Over one hundred years later the Nutcracker remains a holiday favorite.  The 2014 Lynch Ballet Company production promises to dazzle audiences young and old with its gifted dancers, timeless tale and gorgeous costumes designed by Madeline Hinkis, former costume mistress for American Ballet Theater II.

When we return, we will quietly observe the birds that have arrived to enjoy their treats! For kids of all ages and easy enough for young children to enjoy.
