Nutcracker Tea Cracks Up The Kids
Big turnout for 11th annual pre-Nutcracker event for children, all captured in our photos.
More than 450 people attended the Milwaukee Ballet’s 11th annual “Nutcracker Tea” at the University Club on Sunday. On hand were lots of ballet fans, mostly parents and their daughters, many of whom are students at the Milwaukee Ballet School. There were holiday sweets and tea, a performance of a scene from “The Nutcracker,” and a chance for kids to work on crafts in the “toyshop” of Drosselmeyer, a character from the holiday ballet. The entire event was a fundraiser for the Milwaukee Ballet School and the ballet’s community outreach program. Our photos capture the festivities.
