A Very Merry Nutcracker
You are invited, December 4, 5 & 6 to experience the magic of Ballet Chelsea’s The Nutcracker as a drive-in movie at the Chelsea Fairgrounds!
A Very Merry Nutcracker, a feature-length film, is a result of Ballet Chelsea’s creativity and initiative. The filming was enabled through the generosity of donor contributions to the recent “Partner With Us” digital fundraising campaign and the award of $1,000 from Chelsea Area Festivals & Events Grants for the Arts. A Very Merry Nutcracker is not your “normal” Nutcracker. Michael Wecht, a talented local professional with both film and acting experience, and Wendi DuBois took a very different approach to this film rendition of the holiday tradition. Through the lens, DuBois and Wecht invite the viewer to join Marie & Fritz on their journey, not to the conventional Candy Palace, but rather to a beautiful, enchanted garden. DuBois and Wecht spent more than 400 hours rehearsing, filming, editing, and creating the “magic” behind this collaborative endeavor.
