MCA presents The Nutcracker

The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) and the Saint Mary’s University Department of Theatre and Dance will present the Dance Repertory Company in The Nutcracker.

Heralding the message of peace on earth, The Nutcracker is performed around the globe during the holiday season. Producing this delightful ballet every other holiday season, the Dance Repertory Company once again brings this magical experience to the Winona area community for its ninth biennial production.

The cast includes 92 dancers, including students from Saint Mary’s and Winona State University, as well as children and community members from the Winona and surrounding areas.

The Nutcracker will be presented at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, through Saturday, Dec. 3, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens.

A special abridged version, ideal for young audience members who may not be able to sit through the full-length ballet, will be presented at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30. The cost for this afternoon matinee is $5 for everyone.

Tickets may be ordered online at or at the Saint Mary’s Box Office, 507-457-1715 noon to 6 p.m. weekdays. For more information about MCA or the DRC, visit, e-mail, “like” them on Facebook, or call 507-453-5500.
