Note from the mamas: Congratulations to Kathleen Villar, winner of The Nutcracker tickets!
It’s that amazing time of the year when Clara, the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Mouse King (not to mention many, many others!) take to the stage to delight and entertain audiences for the holiday season.
Moscow Classical Ballet’s The Nutcracker will be showing at Walton Arts Center on Dec. 19-21 and we’re giving away FOUR tickets to the opening night show!
This is the fourth time the WAC has brought this show to Northwest Arkansas and we’re so grateful! This is definitely a beloved holiday tradition and a must-see for the whole family. There will be four performances in Walton Arts Center’s Baum Walker Hall on: Friday, Dec. 19 at 7 pm., Saturday, Dec. 20 at 2 pm and 7 pm, and Sunday, Dec. 21 at 2 pm.
Auditions were recently held for children ages 6-10 to be part of the show and 12 local children were chosen to participate in all four performances. Though formal dance training was not a requirement, many of the children take lessons at studios across the region, including Bakstage Dance Co., Williams Center, and Elite Dance Studio.
Congratulations to these local performers:
- Alizabeth Grace McGinnis
- Anna Caroline Johnson
- Avery McFadden
- Brooklyn Bradley
- Ella Grace Cotton
- Gracie Hollis
- Julia Ragon Watts
- Lawson Hooker
- Rylee Ann Adams

- Wryn Pitts
