MARIETTA - With gratitude and great joy, Marietta’s Georgia Metropolitan Dance Theatre (GMDT) announces that its well-loved, annual performance of The Nutcracker is heading to the big screen.
To keep the magic of this holiday tradition alive and thriving, the dance company adjusted their 2020 plans and forged a new community partnership with Studio Movie Grill Marietta to bring the performance to the community in a safe, secure environment. While the dancers will still take the stage at the Jennie T. Anderson Theatre in Marietta to perform their roles – albeit without a live audience – Nutcracker enthusiasts will enjoy this new opportunity to see the show in a way they never have before.
GMDT's The Nutcracker will be showing at the Studio Movie Grill, 40 Powers Ferry Rd., Marietta. Tickets are now on sale. Dates and times are as follows:
December 12, 2020 at 11am and 2pm
December 13, 2020 at 2pm and 5pm
As always, audiences will be entranced by the exquisite choreography performed by more than 100 youth company dancers ages seven to 18 who train at Georgia Dance Conservatory (GDC) on the Marietta Square. The show will once again feature the brilliant sets, costumes, and special effects that spark awe and wonder alongside Tchaïkovsky’s timeless music. GMDT’s The Nutcracker also welcomes back professional dancers D Patton White as Godfather Drosselmeyer and Raul Peinado as the Snow King and Sugar Plum Cavalier .
Since some patrons may not yet be ready to head into the theatre, GMDT has enhanced their long-time partnership with PointeVideo to offer a pay-per-click option for fans to watch The Nutcracker from the comfort of home over the holidays. Details for this option will be available over the coming weeks.
