The Youth Services department at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Missouri City Branch Library will host a special performance of The Nutcracker by The Missouri City Ballet Company on Monday, December 12, beginning at 7:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 1530 Texas Parkway.
Families with children of all ages are invited to enjoy this traditional holiday classic, based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s fairy tale, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.” The beloved classical ballet takes place one Christmas Eve in a small 19th-century Russian town. Clara’s brother breaks the doll given to her by her Uncle Drosselmeyer.
She falls asleep and has a wonderful dream about the Nutcracker Prince’s coming to life and traveling together to the land of sweets.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2100 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
