Hingham Dancers Featured in Nutcracker Production
Four girls from Hingham will perform in this year's Nutcracker production.
90, 3, 4 and 5. Those are the magic number this holiday season. First things first, in its 5th year, South Shore Ballet Theatre can no longer be called a “hidden gem”. Their 5th annual production of the family favorite, The Nutcracker, is testament to that.
With over 90 children in the cast this year – that means there are 3 casts and 4 shows over the weekend of December 8 and 9. The cast will include children from all over the South Shore including four girls from Hingham: Caroline Kelleher (age 14), Katy Connolly (age 16), Allison Walter (age 14), and Catherine Delorie (age 8).
The four performances of The Nutcracker are Saturday, December 8th at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. and again on Sunday, December 9th at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Performances will be in Hingham at Derby Academy.
