Upcoming Events

The Nutcracker

Saturday, December 9 • 1 pm & 7 pm
The School of the Arts at the National Museum of Dance will once again present its annual performance of The Nutcracker at the Maple Avenue Middle School Trombley Auditorium this holiday season. Last year’s performances left audiences spellbound. The dancing, costumes, set, and score interlaced perfectly, providing a magical presentation of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince’s journey through the Kingdom of the Sweets.

Local dancers ranging in age from 4 to 17 will perform, highlighted by a special cameo appearance from National Museum of Dance and School of the Arts instructor Bill Otto as Mother Ginger with her Polichinelles! Otto performed the role with NYCB on stage and in the 1993 movie, The Nutcracker.

$17 per person

Tickets will also be available at the door.

American Soup

December 14,15,16*, 22 & 23 at 7:30 pm
December 17 at 2 pm

Andy Warhol returns! A celebration of pop culture and the landmarks of history on the evolution of the American spirit, all set to iconic music from the last 50 years. Warhol’s philosophy is juxtaposed with the adventures of an Italian-American family in Queens, NY living the country’s highs and lows, loves and disappointments. Live music from the 60s to the turn of the millennium provokes a visit to where & who we were. American Soup reminds us that there is hope even during our darkest times; every end gives way to a new beginning. Presented by iTheatre Saratoga with CPI & the National Museum of Dance and back by popular demand for the Holiday season!

$25 Adults / $15 Students
