Wednesday Nov 23rd, 2022
United Way of Erie County is partnering with Erie Contemporary Ballet Theater (ECBT) for their performances of The Nutcracker on November 26 at 7 p.m. and November 27 at 2 p.m.
"With a cast of more than 100, these performances are sure to delight the young and the young at heart and are proud to feature an Erie only community cast," stated ECBT Artistic Director Sarah Purvis.
"I am excited to not only be Mr. Stahlbaum in the show but also be the representative for United Way. I have the opportunity to tell more people about our local mission to CRUSH POVERTY throughout Erie County while dancing alongside my adorable niece, Francesca, and so many other talented dancers," said Hatheway.
"Partnering with United Way allows ECBT to further its mission, which is to inspire, educate and enrich the lives of the community through the art of dance. By collaborating, we are cross sectioning our audiences to further both of our missions. We are thrilled that United Way will be using The Nutcracker to highlight their upcoming mailing of their millionth book through Imagination Library for Erie County. United Way is a jewel in our community and we are pleased that they will use such a time-honored, holiday classic, like The Nutcracker, to continue their work for Erie County," said Purvis.
