In its 9th year, this 90-min- ute family friendly version of the Nutcracker features variations from Tchaikovsky’s original score as well as arrangements by Duke Ellington and has become a local holiday tradition. The cast features about 100 Millis Public School students in grades preK 12 per evening in different casts each night. Cost is $9 adults, $7 students and seniors, under 5 free. Proceeds from the production help fund the Millis Public Schools dance program which offers free and low cost dance class, workshop, performance and leadership opportunities. The shows are on Friday November 30, at 7 p.m., Saturday December 1, at 3 p.m., and Sunday December 2 at 2 p.m. We are more than happy to accom- modate any senior groups who wish to attend with reserved seating.
