Lawton Ballet to present 'Nutcracker'
This weekend audiences can witness over 240 dancers and actors grace the Cameron University Theatre stage for Lawton Ballet Theatre’s production of “The Nutcracker.”
This is Lawton Ballet Theatre’s sixth year to produce “The Nutcracker,” and according to Katie Veenhuizen, owner of Lawton Ballet Theatre, this is the theater’s biggest year yet. Total performers are 240 and are divided up between two casts, making it 120 performers per cast.
“We are so excited about it,” Veenhuizen said. “We’ve had to get creative because I have some dances that have 20 people in it, and it’s the biggest I’ve ever done, so I had to change some of the choreography in it. But it was fun because those kinds of things stretch you when you have to find a way around things and you end up coming up with something that was better than you had dreamed.”
