Centennial Fine Arts Prepare for The Nutcracker Performance

Words: Shawn Kruhm

Centennial High School will be performing Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker on Thursday, November 30, and Friday, December 1 at 7 p.m. The show will be held in the school auditorium. Admission is $10.00 at the door or online at chs.hcpss.org.

The show is being presented by Centennial’s Junior and Senior dance companies, members of orchestra, wind ensemble, and the singing groups Bella Voce and Madrigals.

The students and the directors of the production have been working for the past few months to put on this show. Performers in the show have been spreading the word about the show through announcements and posters at school, and social media.

The Nutcracker has been a part of Centennial’s history for a long time. The performing arts program used to alternate between the Winter Spectacular and The Nutcracker every other year, and have made the decision to return to that tradition.

One of the directors of the show and Centennial’s dance teacher Rebecca Clark shared, “the directors wanted to bring new repertoire to their students, and thought this would be a great way to bring The Nutcracker back to the Centennial community.”
