'Nutcracker' play tells full story of classic ballet
The Limelight Theater's original production of "The Nutcracker Story" features Sarah Hofmann as Maria, left, Asa Miller as the Nutcracker, Justin Johnson as the Nutcracker turned man and Lauren Haye as the grown-up Maria. The show takes place at the Capitol Center Theater through Saturday.
Kelly and Dennis Strom created costumes and sets for the show Dennis wrote based on the E.T.A. Hoffman story, "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" because they intend to make it a holiday tradition. In the front row from left are Alison Fletcher, Zoe Scarborough, Terry Terpening and Camryn Toney. In the rear are Joe Miller, Jaden Amos, Greg Harpold and Wes Armstead.
