Producing and presenting "The Nutcracker" ballet for the very first time in 2010 was a dream come true for Rachel Tan, Director of Rachel's Ballet. Each year since 2010, we have been invited back by the Temple Hill Cultural Arts Committee to perform our FREE full-length Nutcracker ballet. The Temple Hill Symphony Orchestra often provides live music for our ballet. All performances have been "sold out" each year.
