The Purchase Dance Company will present The Nutcracker ballet from Friday, Dec. 13 to Sunday, Dec. 15 at the Performing Arts Center at 735 Anderson Hill Road in Purchase. The 20th annual production of the world’s favorite holiday ballet features a cast of hundreds.

All 138 undergraduate dance majors from Purchase College Conservatory of Dance and an equal number of children from the Westchester and Fairfield County communities will perform in this year's production.

Wolfgruber said that some children who gained performing experience in Purchase’s Nutcracker have gone on to professional roles, including the current star of Broadway’s Matilda.

The Nutcracker performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14 and 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15. Tickets are $55/$45/$30. For tickets, residents can call 914.251.6200. or visit the Purchase College Performing Arts Center website .
