What happens when a witch is separated from her broom?
Just in time for Halloween, the delightfully spooky story by Chris Van Allsburg, designed by Tony Award-winner Eugene Lee, with choreography by Viktor Plotnikov and a pulsing, haunting score by Aleksandra Vrebalov, returns to the stage. When a witch’s worn-out broom is left behind in a lonely widow’s garden, it becomes part of the family to the growing distrust of her neighbors.

Students have the opportunity to discover the beauty and passion of dance through Festival Ballet Providence’s Discover Dance programs. This program enables school groups to experience ballet in a majestic theater in Providence.
Our dazzling production of The Nutcracker has been, for many Rhode Islanders, their first exposure to a live ballet performance and is one of their most memorable experiences. Other featured productions include The Firebird, Sleeping Beauty, Romeo & Juliet, Esmeralda and A Thousand and One Nights. These productions are designed to cultivate an appreciation for and an understanding of dance.
"This will be my 18th year of seeing the Nutcracker and bringing students. My colleague from the Dawe School in Stoughton nows brings her students too. Every year my students can't wait to get to 5th grade to experience this as many of them probably may never be able to attend if it wasn't for the generosity of your sponsors. Thanks again."
