Thank you to ALL!
Once again the people involved in the production of the Nutcracker provided a wonderful experience for everyone -- from the audience to those involved.
Many thanks for providing an opportunity for this grandma to take two granddaughters to see the Nutcracker without encountering the traffic of the cities at a very affordable price.
"Amazing." At the close of the curtain, my little 4 l/2 yr old granddaughter turned in her seat & said "grandma, that was amazing!" Even our usually very busy little almost 2 yr old sat mesmerized throughout the performance.
Thank you all so very much for offering this wonderful ballet to people right here in Stillwater. We plan to make it an annual holiday event! C.P.
Out of nowhere today I started thinking " Hmm, I sure miss doing The
I used to take classes at your studio
way way back in the day. I believe I started at age 7 in 1995. Even
writing this to you right now is making me emotional when I think back
to the amazingly happy memories that I have from doing The Nutcracker.
As a 7 year old girl there is nothing better in the world than dancing
along with sugar plum fairies and snow queens on stage. The magic that
your production brought to me as a child involved is something that has
stayed and will stay with me /forever/. I continued to dance there until
I was about 15yrs old. I didn't leave by choice, rather, my family moved
up north and Christmas time was never the same. You see, all I could
remember about the Holidays was The Nutcracker. It wasn't a tradition,
it was a way of life. I didn't have a typical ballerina body, and I
definitely didn't have "ballerina feet" so I never danced any of the big
parts..ie. snow, waltz, Spanish etc. etc but I never minded. Just being
able to be involved in something so spectacular is something I have
cherished ever since the first show I was in.
I guess I just really want to express my thanks. My entire family,
including my two brothers, still look back fondly and miss the
Stillwater Nutcracker every single year. I am 21 now and out of college.
I am an actress ( in fact I did a production last year with Suzie
and she remembered me! I was an angel the year she was Clara) and when
people ask me what made me fall in love with the stage I always always
always reply " Doing the Stillwater Nutcracker as a child"
Anyways, thank you thank you. For everything. From the bottom of my
heart. I owe so many happy memories to you.
