Festival Ballet's Nutcracker
What starts out as a family Christmas party turns into a young girl's magical dream of an enchanted Nutcracker doll, who leads her through battles with giant mice, snow storms and a sparkling land featuring the breath-taking dancing of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Archie, the Nutcracker Dog
For the past seven years, Archie, the Festival Ballet's resident dog, has played a part in the Nutcracker written just for him. Bryan Rourke wrote all about Archie in the December 15, 2005 Providence Journal
