This will be the 33rd year that ballet dancers from the Houston Dance Theatre have delighted old and young alike with performances of the full-length production of "The Nutcracker." Excerpts from the holiday classic promise to be just as engaging.
Before the performance, guests will enjoy hot chocolate, tea sandwiches, holiday cookies, sweets and other delights, served at festive tables fitting for high tea with princes and princesses.
"We want this to become a holiday tradition for the community and our LSC-University Park family," said Christina Robinson, LSC-University Park's Chief Strategist for Innovation. Proceeds will benefit the College's new Fine Arts Department.
Autograph and photo sessions are scheduled after the performance.
