home THE KANSAS NUTCRACKER: SESQUICENNTENNIEL EDITION

What:
December 7 & 8 December 14 & 15 | 7pm December 9, 15 & 16 | 2pm With the Free State Liberation Orchestra, featuring members of the Uptown Mandolin Quartet, artistic direction and choreography by Deb Bettinger, script and stage direction by Ric Averill, and orchestration and conducting by Jeff Dearinger. The Arts Center has re-cast the beloved Christmas ballet and set it in 1861, Kansas’ first year of statehood. More than 130 dancers and actors, from students to professionals, and a 13-piece orchestra featuring a mandolin quartet weave together Kansas’ abolition, suffrage and temperance politics with oversized personalities, unpredictable weather, plains landscape and the Civil War into Clara’s surreal ballet dreams. The intensity of the politics of the time paved the way for Quantrill’s Raid just two years later.
