the Magic City Nutcracker (MCN) will stream its digital production via Facebook beginning December 4, 2020 at 7 p.m. In response to Covid-19, the stage ballet was filmed in iconic locations around Birmingham for its seventh annual production. You can view the trailer at www.facebook.com/TheMagicCityNutcracker.
The 2020 production, which is presented by My A.R.T.S Kids, will be streamed free as a tribute to the community. It will also be available for purchase in DVD format. Sponsors who ensured the virtual show could be available at no charge include America’s First Federal Credit Union; Drummond Company, Inc.; Engineering Design Group; High Air Power LLC; Angela Karen Photography; Boardman, Carr, Petelos, Watkins & Ogle; Civil Consultants, Inc.; Dermatology & Skin Care Center; Liberty Park Children’s Dentistry; Vestavia Eye Care; and Warren Averett.
Eighty-eight dancers from 18 dance studios rehearsed via Zoom, and filmed in small, socially-distanced scenes to ensure our community-based production not only continues, but remains a quality production that boasts a local cast. The cast is comprised of dancers as young as 5, college students and professionals from the entire Birmingham metro area, Gadsden, Anniston and beyond, making the MCN the only true community Nutcracker in central Alabama.
