The virtual production
Since 2004 the Nutcracker has been presented at the Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion by Heritage. After the 2019 season the pandemic put a halt to this annual tradition. While Heritage Ballet hopes to bring the Nutcracker back on stage next year, as a gift to the community they created this virtual mini production.
Thanks go to Nutcracker alumni: Jocelyn Regina, Jack Brezina, Julianne vanLieshout, Tim Nicholson, Jessica Bishop, Tamara Poropat, Madeline Hopkins, Sonya Flatman, Loretta Kerr, Christine Bishop, Rebecca Hamilton, Jordyn Archer-Brown, and Amanda vanLieshout.
The dancers in this virtual Production are: Alyssa Morissette, Sophie Longo, Lily Manning, Avery Bullock, Chloe Morissette,
and Alexis Dacey
Thank you to the van Lieshout family, Dani Smolen, and Bill Kerr.
