Clara cordially invites you to the

The Nutcracker Tea Party

Join Clara, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her court at the Nutcracker Tea Party following the Nutcracker performance on December 16, 2018 with this year's "Waltz of the Flowers" theme.   The Tea is sponsored by Coakley &  Williams Construction and will be held at the Norbeck Country Club.  This memorable affair is an interactive experience geared toward pre-school and elementary-aged children and their families. At the Tea, guests will enjoy pancakes with toppings and sweets with coffee, sodas and tea (of course!).  There will also be a cash bar for adult beverages.  Your children will interact and mingle with costumed Nutcracker dancers,  collect autographs, enjoy arts and crafts, have a photo opportunity with the Sugar Plum Fairy and even have a dance lesson with Clara! Guests are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture these special moments.
