Every year, when the holiday season rolls around, ballet companies throughout the Puget Sound area put on a production of “The Nutcracker.”
Community Events, December 2014
The International Ballet Theater (IBT), which features Redmond performers, is dedicating its upcoming performances of “The Nutcracker” at the Kirkland Performance Center (KPC) to two of the most influential men in the city’s history. One of them, former Kirkland mayor Bill Woods, will also be performing in the ballet in the role of the grandfather. The other man is Chuck Morgan, who died in 2009 at age 98. He was simply known as “Mr. Kirkland” and performed the role of the Godfather into his 90s.
In its third year of production, and with new music and arrangements by Terence Alaric Levitt, Redmond’s SecondStory Repertory (SSR) will present an original adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” Dec. 5-20 on its stage at Redmond Town Center, 16587 N.E. 74th St.
Due to an overwhelming reception in San Francisco and garnering strong reviews, Cirque du Soleil announced that 32 additional Redmond performances will be added to the limited engagement of its new production, "KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities." Directed by Michel Laprise and presented by Visa Signature, the run will be extended until March 22, 2015 at Marymoor Park.
