In November 2012, Neos Dance Theatre will premier a new Nutcracker in collaboration with the Findlay Academy of Ballet and Arts Partnership. Your donations will go directly toward the construction of brand new 1940's style costumes, the era in which this authentic, imaginative ballet will be staged. This Nutcracker will tell the story of a young girl growing up in the 1940's, her life impacted by WWII as she dreams of a day when she is lavished with experiences every child dreamt of like a trip to the theatre, dancing with Shirley Temple, or a high society event. It also reflects the struggles and sacrifice of everyday life being a nation at war. Set in the days of U.S. traditions and Holiday splendor you will see a mystical and mysterious world through the eyes of a child who longs to love and be loved by her family and her childhood crush - her next door neighbor. Rehearsals have already begun and it's going to be an amazing show! Arts Partnership of Findlay, Ohio has invested a large amount of funds to present Neos Dance Theatre, as well as the Akron Community Foundation and other individual donors. You can help too by donating toward an integral part of the project - the costumes! Thank you!
