Abilene Ballet Theatre (ABT) will soon begin preparations to bring its stunning production of the Nutcracker ballet to the historic Paramount Theatre stage. For many patrons, attending the Nutcracker marks the official start of the holiday season!
Like many regional dance companies, ABT uses creativity and ingenuity to make the most of every costume, backdrop, and set piece. Over 125 dancers come together to tell the story of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince!
But the Nutcracker is not the only ballet on the Paramount stage each year! In the spring ABT hosts Fairy Tales and Fables: Ballet Beyond the Nutcracker which features scenes from well-known fairy tale ballets as well as choreographed pieces that company members present at the Regional Dance Southwest Festival.
Your generous support helps keep the art of ballet alive in the Big Country.
As a special thank you for your gift to Abilene Ballet Theatre during Abilene Gives, your name will be listed in the 2018 commemorative Nutcracker playbill.
