THE BACKSTORY... San Benito Dance Academy has presented a traditional production of The Nutcracker for 12 years. The challenges that 2020 brought us this season made it tricky, but we believed that with hard work and community efforts, we deserve to experience this tradition and make the magic happen in and for our community!
Over the course of 10 weeks, we forged a way through partnering with community organizations, local businesses, and government to safely film a reinvented "San Benito County" version of the traditional scenes in the production. We took precautionary measures abiding by county-health guidelines, rehearsing and filming in cohorts and mostly outdoor locations, on-the-go around the City of Hollister and greater San Benito County, showcasing historic landmarks and collaborating with local businesses and families in our community who graciously connected with us and allowed our trained dancers to perform.
Editing the footage of four different casts (identifying each show as A, B, C, or D)--each with two showings--we will present a total of eight showings in our six-day premiere running December 18-23, at a drive-in location, in the parking lot at 790 Bolsa Road.
Explanation of Showings and A-B-C-D Casts...
There are four different casts (A, B, C, D). Some dancers have parts that are in all four casts, just two of the casts (AD or BC), or just one of the casts (A, B, C, or D). Contact your dancer to know which cast he/she appears in, to ensure you make reservations to attend the appropriate show! (The total run time is about 90 minutes, without intermission between the two acts.)
