Backstage At The Nutcracker Ballet

     I finally saw The Nutcracker Ballet.  My Uncle bought tickets for the family. It was a real treat.  Our friend Sidney played the role of an elegant party guest.  Knowing someone in the cast made the experience even more special.  Plus, we were able to go backstage.  I don't know which my daughter liked best, the fight scene with the nutcracker and toy soldiers against the mouse king, or going backstage.   She was a little intimidated at first, but after a while she was twirling around on the stage.  She was even invited to join the cast next year.
