Holiday Season 2020: 

“The Santa Cruz Nutcracker: Clara’s Dream” is a beautiful and creative interpretation of our favorite holiday tradition. SCBT is producing the Nutcacker story told through our talented dancers and innovative choreography on film. SCBT uses the many beautiful and iconic locations in Santa Cruz as a backdrop and will feature archival footage of guest stars Melody Mennite and Lucien Postlewaite from our traditional staging. And of course the music is provided by our Nutcracker Orchestra conducted by Maestro Pamela Martin.
