2015 Edition of "The Nutcracker" Canceled
Hamilton, Ala. – Officials with the Northwest Alabama Arts Council announce cancelation of the 2015 edition of "The Nutcracker." The vote of the executive board, taken at the arts council’s regularly scheduled July 13 meeting, was unanimous to cancel this year’s performance.
The arts council considered multiple factors in making the difficult decision to cancel this year’s production but specifically identified increasing production costs and the lack of growth of student matinee performances as the primary factors in reaching the decision. The arts council is not excluding the return of The Nutcracker at a later date.
During discussions, the arts council also offered its sincerest gratitude to Bevill State Community College-Hamilton for hosting the event for the past two years, and Mrs. Jessica Turner, the executive director for The Nutcracker, who so graciously donated her time and talents for the success of the production. Arts council executives and general members also recognized the contributions, donations, and outstanding support of the entire community, especially the performers, in making The Nutcracker a success in its two seasons of performances.
