The Nutcracker Ballet at Seaside Amphitheater
The Merchants of Seaside will host the annual Nutcracker ballet to be performed by Ballet Pensacola. The Nutcracker performance has become a beautiful holiday tradition in the town of Seaside in South Walton, Fla. The one-time performance of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker in Seaside is scheduled for Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 5pm. The Seaside Amphitheater performance is free and open to the public. Bring low back chairs and blankets and enjoy the show!
Featuring Acts I and II, the Nutcracker in Seaside will last approximately an hour. Set to a score by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, the performance will feature approximately 30 Ballet Pensacola ballerinas and 10 local dancers, ages 8 to 18.
The first Nutcracker in Seaside was performed in 2012 when Seaside co-founder and patron of the Arts Daryl Davis invited Alpharetta Dance Theatre dancers to perform the Nutcracker with the Dance Academy of Seaside Neighborhood School. There was standing room only for that first performance which ignited the holiday spirit in the hearts of those who now view the event as an area tradition. In September, auditions were held for Northwest Florida dancers, ages 8 to 18, from Pensacola to Panama City who wanted to dance in this year’s performance.
