24th Annual Nutcracker Production

2021 Nutcracker Cast


2021 Dates TBD

at The Wynona Thompson Auditorium

Cody, Wyoming

Join us for a full-length Nutcracker Ballet set to Tchaikovsky's famous score. Choreography, sets, and lighting are all original, led by professionals in their field. Along with a cast of around one hundred dancers and children from our local community and surrounding areas, in 2020 RMDT was proud to announce the return of Randy Pacheco and Sasha Vincett as last season’s guest artists. Soloists with Ballet Arizona, they performed the roles of Sugar Plum and Cavalier in this 23rd annual production produced by Rocky Mountain Dance Theatre.

RMDT's production of the Nutcracker brings the classic Nutcracker tale to life. It is a magical night about an enchanted Christmas Party where Clara is the guest of honor. After the party, the audience is witness to Clara's vivid dreams about her Nutcracker who comes to her rescue and then brings her to a magical land of dancing snowflakes and sugar treats.

Nutcracker 2018

Nonprofit, RMDT’s Annual Production of The Nutcracker offers members of the community, of all ages, an opportunity to participate in and contribute to a classical theatre experience, at the same time providing education in ballet and theatre techniques, academic knowledge, self-discipline, self-confidence, and artistic expression. In an atmosphere of encouragement and acceptance, The Nutcracker provides experience and interaction with peers as well as professionals in dance and theatre, such as lighting and stage experts from the University of West Florida and the University of Houston and guest artists from the likes of Ballet Arizona, New York City Ballet, Julliard, and the Suzanne Farrell Company of Washington DC. Since its first production in 1997, The RMDT Nutcracker is the only performance in the area which this type of exposure to the arts is afforded to our youth. The cast and crew work hard to ensure that The Nutcracker is of professional grade and entertaining for the community to enjoy.
