Another post from Development Manager, Alison Hayes:
On Sunday December 4th, Park City residents of all ages attended the Nutcracker Tea Party presented by Ballet West and the Promontory Kids Cabin. Partiers were welcomed at the lovely Hearth Restaurant at the Pete Dye Canyon Clubhouse at Promontory, Utah to celebrate the Holiday Season and to learn about the magical story of The Nutcracker. Snow fell outside while inside attendees stirred their tea with candy canes, nibbled on sandwiches and cream puffs and were visited by The Nutcracker characters, Clara (Madison Young) and Fritz (Henry Winn).
Everyone joined around the fireplace to listen to local author, Michelle Ostrowski (Lucy Goes to Paris), read a shortened version of the popular story, and were provided bookmarks, a nutcracker ornament and a coupon to attend the Ballet West performance. After story time Clara and Fritz demonstrated some of their favorite ballet moves and showed off their beautiful costumes. A wonderful way to celebrate a favorite tradition, fun was had by all!
