Bravo, EBT! I went to Saturday’s Nutcracker and was SO impressed with the quality of your dancing and acting! The full pit orchestra was terrific and your entire production was utterly professional. Thank you for all your fine work!

Get a closer look at the world of ballet and live theatre! For the fourth consecutive year, EBT invites non-profit children’s groups and veterans to attend our dress rehearsal on Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are general admission and seating begins at 9:45 a.m. Please note that because this is a dress rehearsal, some stops/repeats should be expected.  

Tickets are $12 each, and are sold through EBT, not NPAC. Please download/mail in the ticket order form, or email info@emeraldballet.org for more information. 

Thank you so much for opening the dress rehearsal to non-profits in the area. It was absolutely wonderful and our community kids LOVED it! We were so proud of them and look forward to bringing them again next year.
