The Springfield Ballet Company has produced a documentary that provides an exciting behind-the-scenes journey through the history of the company's annual production of The Nutcracker. The film spans more than 40 years and includes exclusive interviews, never-before-seen footage and a look at company alumni who played the role of Clara over the years. The Springfield Ballet Company was formed in 1975 by the merger of two local dance companies – Copper Coin Ballet and Ballet Concert Group. The Nutcracker was the company's first production and it quickly became an annual holiday classic. So, go online to select a time to view the documentary, grab your family and some snacks, snag the best seats in the house and prepare to enjoy this new holiday production.
