Dot talent drives Urban Nutcracker

This season’s production of the Urban Nutcracker, now in its 17th year, includes a great line-up of Dorchester talent, including (above l-r), Ana Lucia Heebner, Hope Williams, Echo Kirke-Sofer, Benedicte Pierre Louis, Penelope Duff-Wender, Kyre Ambrose, Max Kirke-Sofer, Abraham Coumbassa, and Greta Gorman, who will perform in many of the show’s signature dances as ducklings, mice, rats, party boys and girls, tappers, hip-hoppers and more.
Ella Moye-Gibbons, who has performed in the Urban Nutcracker several times already, says that “the show is a great opportunity to be a part of a professional production and amazing show.”

The dance company’s run includes an autism-friendly matinée, two school matinées, and afternoon and evening shows for the whole family, starting on Dec. 15 at the Back Bay Events Center (John Hancock Hall). See for more info.
