Key West – Tennessee Williams Theatre – Paradise Ballet Theatre – This year, for the third time, the storied ballet will grace our shores and stage with a sumptuous, artful theatrical experience. Transformed and brought forth through the vision of Executive Producer and Artistic Director Joyce Stahl, it is our very own Nutcracker Key West– complete with chickens, roosters, sea fans, anemones, snowy egrets, and yes, even a conch shell nutcracker. Joyce Stahl’s Nutcracker Key West was born amid the maelstrom of the hurricane-wracked conditions of 2005. And it was due to the strength of Stahl’s determination and commitment, the will of a hopeful community and its children, and the talent and dedication of an astounding support team, that the dream made it to the stage.
Nutcracker Key West is more than just a ballet. It incorporates seasonal joys and traditions with Key West imagery, icons, characters and heritage in a cooperative effort involving the island’s children, local talent and community leaders in conjunction with a professional corps de ballet.
