Every holiday season, Curtain Call is proud to present a stunning rendition of The Nutcracker at the gorgeous
Pike Performing arts center.

This performance is a favorite throughout our community, and provides a unique and cultural experience for our talented dancers. Each Curtain Call dancer that auditions is given a spot in the performance, based on costume size availability and experience level.
