BRATTLEBORO- Join the New England Center for Circus Arts for its annual holiday show that puts a circus spin on the classic “Nutcracker” tale. Every year the professional level school envisions a unique interpretation and this year “The Flying Nut: A Journey” follows a boy and his friends on a trip through magical lands after receiving their unusual gift.
This annual show brings together onstage the professional adult programs and the youth performance troupes with a few guest artists. The show is fun for the whole family with high flying trapeze, acrobatics, partner balancing, juggling, German wheel, and more. Performances are at NECCA’s main studio located on the third floor at 74 Cotton Mill Hill.
The show has sold out in past years and it is highly recommended to purchase tickets in advance. Shows are Friday, December 20, at 7 pm; Saturday, December 21, at 1 pm and 5 pm; and Sunday, December 22, at 1 pm and 5 pm. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for youth under 12, and $8 for seniors.
