Sitka’s “Alaskan Nutcracker” is staged every other year. Over 75 performers dance in this season’s production, which plays this weekend (Dec 2 – 4) in the Sitka Performing Arts Center. Over 600 volunteer hours have been spent on costuming alone. Among the highlights – a “Rat Queen” and XTRATUF tap shoes!
