Lycoming College’s music department and the St. John School of the Arts, in collaboration with the Community Arts Center (CAC), will unite to present Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker,” on Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m., and again on Dec. 3 at 4 p.m. at the CAC in downtown Williamsport.

Start the holiday season on a high-note with this family-friendly ballet about a girl’s favorite Christmas toy that comes to life, and after defeating the evil Mouse King, carries her away to a magical land. The Lycoming College and Williamsport communities are invited to relive the magic of the Land of the Sweets and the Sugar Plum Fairy with “The Nutcracker,” one of the most famous ballets in the world.

William Ciabattari, Ph.D., associate professor of music at Lycoming College, and chair of the department will conduct the orchestra, made up of Lycoming faculty, students and area professionals.

In this production, dancers are under the direction of Theresa Kendall, ballet and modern dance instructor at Williamsport’s Saint John’s School of the Arts, which offers training in music and the fine arts to area youth and adults.

Public tickets range from $15-25, and can be purchased online at, or by calling the box office at 570.324.2424.
