The Tuscaloosa Community Dancers’ annual production of the Nutcracker will open at the Bama Theatre Thursday at 7:00 p.m.

The show features a large cast of local dancers.

“We have a cast and crew of over 100 dancers from the community, and it’s a challenge each year to get us all together; we rehearse on weekends, and everyone just fully commits to it,” said Alden Phillips, the Artistic Director of Tuscaloosa Community Dancers.

“It’s a lot of fun, and we have a lot of fun putting on the show.”

Madeline Evans, 12, will dance the role of Clara.

“It’s a lot of fun to watch, and just be there because it’s very entertaining,” Evans said.

There will be two performances on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Sunday’s performance will take place at 2:00 p.m.

The box office will open two hours prior to the show, and the lobby doors will open an hour before the show.
