A cup of Nutcracker Tea
Tickets for SPAC's Nutrcracker Tea fundraiser go on sale on Friday.
The one-hour performance of the classic ballet on Nov. 17 is sponsored by the The Albany Academies and presented by the Saratoga Performing Art Center's Action Council. The performance is by the Northeast Ballet Company.
SPAC President and Executive Director Marcia White noted that last year the show sold out and was a huge hit with kids and adults. She predicted a memorable day for fans attending this year's event.
