The Nutcracker Picture9

December 15, 2017         10:00 AM               

The State Theatre presents the timeless ballet of the story of a little girl’s Christmas fantasy featuring local dancers from throughout our area. Follow Clara on her fanciful journey with her beloved Nutcracker in Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet.



Nugget and Fang

May 7 2018 10:00 AM and 12:30 PM

ArtsPower’s colorful new musical tells the story of Nugget, a minnow, and Fang, a shark, who get along swimmingly — until Nugget’s first day of minnow school. There, Nugget learns that minnows are supposed to be afraid of sharks! To regain Nugget’s trust, Fang takes desperate and hilarious measures.


All Education Series performances provide a study guide with pre- and post- show discussion topics and activities to enhance the learning experience. Recommended ages and grade levels are provided. Those age groups will get the most out of the production. Audience members younger and older than the recommended age group are welcome to attend and will understand and enjoy most of the production. Teachers, as you know your class and your students’ abilities, use your discretion.
