On Saturday 12/8 at 11am New England Ballet and Milford's Merry Musical Theater will present their Adaptive Nutcracker.
Milford Recreation Department's Merry Musical Theater program is produced for special-needs performers to introduce audiences and participants alike to the performing arts. In each of the three past years, the organization’s production of The Nutcracker has featured a cast whose dancers include young people with autism, Down syndrome, and other emotional and physical disabilities. For months dancers from New England ballet Company have been mentors helping Merry Musical Theater participants learn the story and choreography.
This year New England Ballet Company was a recipient of the C Newton Schenck Lifetime Achievement Award from The New Haven Arts Council. The company was recognized for the Adaptive Nutcracker.
Everyone that sees this show will tell you, it is a holiday memory that will not be soon forgotten.
This year’s performance of The Adaptive Nutcracker will be at Parson’s Complex in Milford on December 8th at 11.00am. For tickets or information please call 203-799-7950 or visit our website www.newenglandballet.org
