The Children's Nutcracker, based on a ballet by Piotr Tchaikovsky was performed on Saturday, January 16, 2016 to a packed audience at the Bowie Performing Arts Center in Bowie, Maryland. Our very talented Ardmore cast of performers were the shining stars that evening.

All the hours and days devoted to practice sessions and dress rehearsals paid off, culminating in an outstanding performance. Congratulations to the entire cast!

We want to thank all of those who contributed so selflessly of their time and resources!

We appreciate all of you! The Nutcracker truly came to life through all your hard work.

THANK you, Mrs. Gregory for directing the ballet and for your tireless hours in making the production a success.

Also, thanks to Mr. Michael Gregory for assisting with the costume design!
