When senior Catherine Wright steps up and dances on the stage in early December in front of an enthusiastic audience, it’ll be her 11th year performing in The Nutcracker. It is a tradition for the Texarkana Community Ballet team and PG girls of all grades to put together this classic Christmas special with dancing and music. Some PG students have been in this play every year since kindergarten, so they have lots of experience. 

“I think I’m the only one in my grade to have done it (the play) every single year.” senior Catherine Wright said, who has the major role of Clara, the girl who receives the toy nutcracker for Christmas. 

Tryouts for the play were held back in August, and practice for the girls started in September. Girls with huge roles, such as Wright, rehearse up to five days a week. However, most students practice only once a week, and all of them dance to classical music. 

“It [the music] brings back good Christmas memories and it gets you in the season for the holidays.” junior Rachel Hemphill said, who plays the Flower Princess.

With the ongoing tradition being performed in the Perot Theatre for over 20 years, many students are looking forward for the event as Christmas spirit arises.

Rachel Hemphill says it’s a great way to get back into the Christmas spirit, and she enjoys doing it every year.
