Nutcracker in a Nutshell

Presented by the Lake Placid Center for the Arts & EMERGE125

This weekend's public performances of Nutcracker in a Nutshell are cancelled due to new incidences of COVID-19 in our community. As difficult as it is to change plans after many weeks of rehearsing and looking ahead to a beloved holiday event, the LPCA has determined that the best way to support our dancers, their families and all our patrons is to take extra care when it comes to the health and safety of our extended community.

Instead of live performances, dancers will have the opportunity to record their scenes this weekend in a socially-distanced setting, to be included in a video compilation of this special version of the Nutcracker. More information about this will be available soon for families and anyone else interested!

For all ticketholders, we will reach out to you directly with next steps.

All of us at the LPCA want to thank you for your understanding and ongoing support as we work hard to continue sharing arts experiences during challenging times.

...dedicated to presenting and fostering quality arts, which inspire, enrich, educate and entertain people of all ages.
