Ballet Pensacola presents The Nutcracker
Choreographed and Directed by Artistic Director Darren McIntyre
(Hannah Holtsclaw plays the role of Clara and Veronica Ramirez Casanova plays the role of The Sugar Plum Fairy)
Pensacola Saenger Theatre
December 16-18, 2022
Ballet Pensacola brings the wildly popular holiday favorite, The Nutcracker to the
Pensacola Saenger Theatre this December. The family classic, with music by composer
Peter Tchaikovsky, tells the story of young girl, Clara, who together with the Nutcracker
Prince, defeat the evil Mouse King. The Sugar Plum fairies host a celebration in their
honor. More than 100 children from the Ballet Pensacola Academy portray characters in
this magnificent mainstage production which treats the audience to stunning costumes
and lavish set design.
Artistic Director Darren McIntyre uses his well-honed, imaginative choreography skills to
bring The Nutcracker to life. Ballet Pensacola’s Principal Dancers Hannah Holtsclaw and
Juan Arango will delight audiences with their artistic and technical ballet acumen as they
portray the characters of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince.
McIntyre has assembled the largest Ballet Pensacola company ever, featuring twenty
professional dancers from around the world. Audiences can experience the new
company in The Nutcracker from December 16-18, 2022.
Tickets for The Nutcracker range in price from $40 – $50, and are ONLY available from
Ticketmaster.com, PensacolaSaenger.com, or by calling Pensacola Saenger Theatre at

Nutcracker performances sell out fast.
