Matthews, NC – Due to COVID-19 and the health and safety of all dancers and their families, Matthews Ballet and the Town of Matthews Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resource Department has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 performances of The Nutcracker Ballet.

Auditions were scheduled to begin September 12, but due to the group size restrictions and social distancing, we are unable to safely comply with the guidelines, which is one reason for us canceling the production.

Auditions and rehearsals start in early September, so waiting to cancel the production is not an option. The restrictions that would have to be put on the audience and on the cast for the actual performances would have been detrimental to the experience and enjoyment of our family-friendly performance of The Nutcracker. We will continue with our regular Ballet classes through the school year, with a final Spring recital in May. We look forward to being able to bring The Nutcracker back to the families in Matthews in November & December 2021.
