Dear Alameda Civic Ballet Families,
Thank you so much for allowing your child to audition for our Nutcracker production this year. We are passionate about ACB's mission, and producing the Nutcracker every year for the past eleven years has enabled us to pursue that passion. Your support has been instrumental in this process and we truly thank you. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we are heartbroken to report that we have to cancel our Nutcracker production this year. We understand how extremely disappointing this news is and want to provide you with an explanation. Please read more here.
Although we are very disappointed about the cancellation of this year's Nutcracker, we are still looking forward to our annual Nutcracker Breakfast on
