This will be the third year for the performance of “The Nutcracker.” The performance showcases dancers in Wallace State’s Dance program, Ballet South and members of the Cullman Community Theatre. The production is led by Brooke Desnoës, Wallace State Dance instructor and owner of Ballet South.

This is truly a community production! There are new costumes, special effects, and rumor has it that Santa will be attending each performance and welcoming children as they arrive!”
