Christmas... in July!

Costumes wear out…sets start to crumble…cannons fail to boom…and the clock stops ticking.

Maintaining the high quality of the Springfield Ballet Company’s production of The Nutcracker is a continuing challenge. Unfortunately, the costs of staging this magical production are only partially covered by the generosity of our corporate sponsors and ticket revenue. Your generous donations help the Springfield Ballet Company thrive in a world where funding for the arts continues to fall short.

As you enjoy the warmth of summer, you may find it’s not too early to have visions of sugarplums dancing in your head. Our skilled dancers and audiences of children and families count on your support to help bring those unforgettable visions to life!

From the brave soldiers and ethereal angels to Clara and her Nutcracker Prince, your donation to support The Nutcracker will enable us to continue this wonderful family tradition that has charmed and entranced Central Illinois for over 35 years.

While all amounts of support are welcomed and appreciated, we have provided you the option to choose your giving level based on a favorite variation from The Nutcracker. Your donation will be recognized in our souvenir program book, given to thousands of patrons during our
2013-2014 season.

We sincerely thank you for your continued support and for making our Christmas in July campaign a great success!
