Nutcracker in a nutshell: Public performances cancelled this weekend

LAKE PLACID — This weekend’s public performances of Nutcracker in a Nutshell are cancelled due to new incidences of COVID-19 in our community.

As difficult as it is to change plans after many weeks of rehearsing and looking ahead to a beloved holiday event, the Lake Placid Center for the Arts has determined that the best way to support our dancers, their families and all our patrons is to take extra care when it comes to the health and safety of our extended community.

Instead of live performances, dancers will have the opportunity to record their scenes this weekend in a socially-distanced setting, to be included in a video compilation of this special version of the Nutcracker.

For all ticketholders, the LPCA will reach out directly with next steps.

The LPCA staff, board and co-production partners EMERGE125 want to thank you for your understanding and ongoing support as we work hard to continue sharing arts experiences during challenging times.

Questions can be directed to info@lakeplacidarts.org or the box office at 518-523-2512.
