Nutcracker Photo Book Available for Purchase

Van Dyke and Company and the Mahoning Valley Ballet presented the Nutcracker in November 2012 at the Punxsutawney Area High School. Celebrating the twelfth anniversary of our production, the Nutcracker has greatly evolved since our first staging in 1988. A special thank you to all who made our performances a success throughout the years. And to our cast of talented individuals who have brought so much beauty to our stage.

The following images from our 2012 performance are included in a 7" x 7" soft cover photo book which is available for purchase. Order forms are available at the Punxsutawney Studio and must be returned to the main office for processing. The 70 page album includes over 150 professionally enhanced images.
