The Nutcracker Suite

On Tuesday, December 13, 2022 the Delta Children’s Museum will present “The Nutcracker Suite” by Peter Zapletal and the Puppets Arts Theatre at 9:00 and 11:00 am in E.E. Bass Auditorium.  Admission price is $5 per person.  Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker Suite” is an exciting way to introduce children to this classic story, classical music and puppetry.  This version was specifically designed for the younger audience Pre K- 4th grade.  The world-famous ballet is performed often, but very rarely using puppets and the unique black theatre technique, developed by Czech puppeteers.  This complex and stunning style of presentation allows complete freedom of movement for the almost-life-size puppets who interact on stage with a real-life narrator, Dr. Drosselmeyer.  Puppets move effortlessly, without visible means of support, because the puppeteers standing directly behind them, cannot be seen.  Reservations may be made and tickets purchased at the Greenville Arts Council 662-332-2246.  For additional information, please visit their website:
