For the first time in 49 years, Colton Ballet is unable to produce The Nutcracker for our community. We didn’t come by this decision easily, but with the safety and well-being of our patrons, dancers, staff, friends, and families in mind, this decision was unavoidable. As COVID-19 continues to spread, the future has never felt so unpredictable. There’s little public funding for the arts, and the issue of live performance faces some of the highest barriers in a return to activity. Now, more than ever, we need you. Were you planning to attend this year’s Nutcracker performances, or were you considering an ad in this year’s program? Even though our stage is dark, will you help us keep the lights on by making a contribution to Colton Ballet?


In 2021, Colton Ballet looks forward to the triumphant
return of The Nutcracker to the stage!
