Ordway Conservatory of Classical Ballet invites you to their fifth annual An Interactive Nutcracker – the Nutcracker ballet experience where you become a part of the show! Sunday Dec. 11, 2022 at 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. at Colgan High School in Manassas.

Children from the audience are invited to join the dancers onstage during act one! They’ll even get to learn and perform a dance with Clara and her friends! They’ll join the cast of 105 local children who have been rehearsing since October to tell this classical holiday story in a unique and immersive way.

Artistic Director Sara Ordway said, “You can feel the magic in the air at our An Interactive Nutcracker. The boys and girls who come up onstage are smiling ear to ear and some of them literally vibrate with excitement as they learn the dance. I am so grateful to be able to bring that joy to our community.”

When asked why she loves dancing, this year’s Clara, Kaylee Preston-Valentine said, The growth. Pushing myself to improve. I feel like I’ve improved so much from last year and it just makes me smile every time I see the improvement.”

The show is Sunday Dec. 11 at 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. at Colgan High School, 13833 Dumfries Road, Manassas. Tickets are $15-$25 and available at
